Now based on the magical island
of Bali in Indonesia

Using a wide range of media and techniques to explore my fascination for creativity, I work in many fields including painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, product design, visualization, UX and user interface design.

Before moving to Bali, I was Director of Research and Development at Jawbone. I previously ran a lecture series in London at Tate Modern on computer graphics under my company Supernatural and continue now to work on speech writing and presentation development such as Green School co-founder, John Hardy's TED lectures. I use this site as a portfolio of recent projects and concepts and also home to my blog where I discuss ideas, news and areas of this great wide world that pique my diverse interests ...and yes, my real name is zissou.  


Since moving to Bali in 2010 I have become far more deeply involved in sustainable thinking and design. I have built a bamboo home in the jungle, grow a wide range of fruit and vegetables and make a concerted effort to become more aware and considerate of nature and it's vital role in allowing us to live on this planet. To this end, should you have a creative project you feel could advance this type of neo-realism and are looking for creative assistance, you can contact me via the link above.

This must be the place

‘This must be the place’ is a series of short films that explore the idea of home; what makes them, how they represent us, why we need them.

This film is about a John Coffer, ( it was at this point I was going to label him, but I would prefer not to – just watch and make you’re own mind up).

A thought that popped into my head as I watched it was that as tranquil as it looks, he is made out to be a bit of a loner, which is a shame as this may deter others from reassessing and learning to live more rationally.
