General Manager & Webtech

Dominic is generalist – an events producer, project manager, business administrator, and technical consultant with a background in social enterprises. He has studied Business Information Systems, Strategic Management, and Egyptian hieroglyphs.

He has been Technical Director at a specialist ISP during the first dotcom boom; IT Manager for a large reproductive healthcare charity; and an IT & management consultant to SMEs & NGOs as well as the public sector.

He co-created the “dot coop” top-level Internet domain, and the first (solar powered) cyber cafe at Glastonbury Festival in 1995. He designed and project managed a large WiFi network for a national heritage site on a private island. He co-authored a book about not-for-profits use of the Internet; and a business plan for a million pound community waste reuse scheme in partnership with a local council.

Dominic was co-organiser of Kingston Green Fair, the UK’s best known one-day family event focused on environmental sustainability; he co-managed The Synergy Project, the UK’s largest regular counter-cultural clubbing event & successor to The Warp Experience; and he co-launched a sustainability campaign in partnership with the Club of Budapest.

He was an official event photographer for The Synergy Project, Big Green Gathering, Glade Music Festival and The Southwark Mysteries (the play by John Constable in which he also had a minor acting role).

He was also one threads that accidentally inspired Daisy Campbell to adapt Cosmic Trigger, which he first read in the late 1980’s. The choice for his first email address (on CIX) in 1991 was inspired by Antero Alli’s book Angel Tech which was published by New Falcon Press alongside Cosmic Trigger.
