I have the good fortune to be a co-founder here at RedBubble and part of the team that provides this service.

I believe that we deepen our humanity when we express our creativity and share in other’s. At some point most of us are told we are not artistic and this is often the end of our creativity journey. This impoverishes us all. Creativity is at the heart of the human condition. Through it we make sense of the world and we grow in wisdom.

I pray, I cherish my family and with passion I share what we are doing at RedBubble and hope you will join us on the journey. I wish to share and celebrate your creativity and hope you can share in mine.

I have the joy at living at Three Springs, a farm outside of Melbourne which I share with my wife and my three daughters.

RB Clothing

I am deeply disturbed by the recent tragic events at a garment factory in Bangladesh. This is no accident or natural disaster. It is made not just by the owners of the factory and the authorities in Bangladesh; it is a product of a relentless demand for cheaper clothing in the West – at any price. And here the price has been paid in the lives of the poor. / 6 years ago we committed to a strategy …
