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.

Bali, Bonzu, nature

One of my favorite soothing sounds of the early evening is the distinct tones of the larger geckos often living in the roof eaves. I spotted this warbler, sitting on my deck in the early morning. Quite rare to see them out and about in the day, and especially this close up.

I have added a second close up of the same shot so you too can marvel, as I did, at the incredible patterns in the eye, not to mention my old iPhone’s amazing macro skills!
