About meI worked for many years in advertising, recently being Global Managing Director at Ogilvy and Mather in NYC. I launched and led the famous Dove “Real Beauty” campaign. I have four sons. The second eldest is Toby Hemingway, the actor. I help many not for profit and non-profit organizations. I’m Board Chair of Grab The Torch, an organization that teaches philanthropy to young students. I give public speeches about service and generosity to companies and schools.

This is my second book. The first is called The Mallard and The Dove, which can be viewed free on This was written for families to read together, as was The Legend of Vysallimore. I’m English. I’ve been living in New York for the past 10 years. All my work is about inclusion and generosity. I always hope to inspire.

About my libraryAbout My Book:

It is said that the epic battle of Vysallimore took place in the Middle Ages, near the Polish city of Kozsalin, during a total eclipse of the sun. Many believe this to be true. The story of how a family of Knights and a brave Inn Keeper fought the evil Graf Vogor and Satan himself to save a silent Maiden has been passed down from one generation to another.

When a total eclipse is due, pilgrims journey to Koszalin, to visit the Chapel on the Gora Chelmska and touch the Red Tower. Then they walk the few miles to a narrow strip of sand that divides a lake from the sea. This strip of sand is called Vysallimore. There, they sit by the burned out Lightning Tree and wait. When the eclipse is at its fullest, they witness one of the most awe inspiring sights in the world. The Legend of Vysallimore.
