For the past couple of years I have been the creator of The Lost Book of Adventure; the bestselling bible to adventure that has been translated around the world - and more recently the follow up - set for release in September this year.

When I'm not exploring remote corners of the Amazon rainforest by canoe

or teaching kids how to remove arrows from their friends thighs, I'm a London based writer, art director and creative director who works with interesting agencies and brands in need of adventurous ideas.

Whilst donning my advertising hat, I have created global campaigns for well known brands, conjured virals such as Photoshoplooter, still one of the internet's most shared memes, as well as launch start ups, social media frenzies and world-first music videos.

I have yet to master homeschooling.

I live in North London with my wife and two, slightly less educated children.

If you'd like to get in touch to talk about ideas feel free to send me an email...  ruckspin_teddy@hotmail.com
