"Rise" by Mark Bouris

At a time of ultimate global disruption, whilst many people are having to re-set their goals and take a new path. Mark Bouris is a self-made man who knows what that feels like. He sees this as an opportunity to change what isn't working.

The founder of two hugely successful financial institutions, he's watched Australia's enormous potential be squandered as entrepreneurship has been ignored, ingenuity has been punished and our reputation for boxing above our weight as a nation has been torn down. It's pissed him off. And now, more than ever, he knows we all have to be our best self and not throw in the towel and think it is all too hard.

 The Hoopla

On a day in Australia when everyone is talking about war, I'd prefer to talk about love...actually. So began an article I wrote on a screenwriting blog, this day four years ago. I'm reminded of my own words, for it's ANZAC day again and for the twenty-seventh year in a row, there is a sense of disquiet on my Western Front. Read more...

I Knew Nothing. The Times of Israel.

Three years ago, my life changed. Three years ago, as a journeyman screenwriter here in Sydney, with a script I'd been on for ten years, languishing in "development hell" (is that a contradiction in terms, "languishing" in "Hell?"), I was given a brief for a movie, written on one side of a sheet of A4. If I'm glib, the central tenet of that brief was "to solve the problems of the Middle East in a film script".
