Born and raised in the cathedral city of Winchester, Roland earned his Eurotrash merit badge in Paris before moving to America to seek his fortune. If you've seen it, please give him a shout, because he's still looking. A digital Don Draper with a Hemingway complex, Roland pays the bills with his social media savvy, but under various nom de plumes is a top-ranked Amazon author after hours, and is impatiently awaiting the day he can give up the rat race forever and write schlock in a cabin in the mountains.

Daniel Craig’s press tour for Spectre has caused almost as many headlines as the upcoming movie itself – but let’s set the record straight. He’s NOT giving up the tuxedo any time soon.

If you’re as much of a fan of naked ladies as I am, you’re no doubt shocked and appalled by the news that Playboy magazine – the icon of softcore nudity worldwide – is going ‘nudity free’ in 2016. But the real question is: Will it destroy the brand? The Playboy bunny is the second-most […]

What’s the best ‘Back to the Future Day’ marketing piece?

Militant Ginger 0
It’s finally here – the day I’ve been dreaming about ever since I was a kid. It’s the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown travelled to ‘the future’ in their time-travelling DeLorean. Only it’s not the future any more. It’s now. And in what must be one of the most fun marketing experiences of my […]
