Hi, I'm Harry Guinness; a web designer, photographer, publisher, entrepreneur, consultant, writer, and International Man of Mystery. I'm also a fan of self-experimentation (to the occasional dismay of my family and friends) and skill acquisition.
In 2012, to learn photography, I took a photo every day. The resulting video can be seen here. I also worked with Alastair Humphreys to adapt his book about walking across India, There Are Other Rivers, for iPad.
2013 was largely dedicated to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). I competed almost 10 times and I currently hold a national grappling title as well as a ridiculous collection of semi-semi-precious metal plated medals. I worked with Ian Packham to publish his book, Encircle Africa, about thirteen months spent traveling around Africa by public transport.
For 2014, I'm going to continue with BJJ, and in addition, learn chess, computer programming, read 52 books, and experiment with 30-day habit challenges.
My longer term goals include sailing the Atlantic Ocean, becoming a PADI Divemaster, and learning Spanish.
I've got a newsletter so you can stay abreast of all my projects and self-experimenting. It'd be awesome if you signed up!
