ME AND MY NETWORK
This is the Head primate speaking. My name is Andrew Crighton. I was born in England in 195o; I came to Canada in 1966 and, after living in both Montreal and Toronto (and marrying in both cities), I now have three children and something of a mid-Atlantic identity. I’m primarily a writer and content marketer, but also a thinker, creative team leader and sometime mentor to others. iPrimate is my voice in the marketplace of creative communication. There are some good reasons why it’s called iPrimate that you can read about.
One characteristic of primates is that they are social animals. My work is not all my own; I have always counted on the kindness and talents of other creative primates to participate in my projects. Wherever possible on this site, I have tried to acknowledge the contributions of others in the iPrimate Network. If you’re a creative person and want to collaborate, there is always room for you in the network.
In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I’m somewhat a ‘mashability’ junkie. There are traditionalists (about my age) who decry the fact that things ain’t what they used to be in the Age of Analogue. Back then, art was art. You had to have special skills and talents, because everything was created from ‘scratch’ - music wasn’t about turntables and sampling, design wasn’t about Photoshop, film wasn’t about consumer video on steroids etc. Well, excuse me – it is now.
