I've been a DJ, forest rave promoter, Ministry of Defence employee, journalist, digital producer, radio host, talent agent, teacher, product manager, coach, and entrepreneur.

Believe it or not, there's a common thread (no, really): creating platforms and opportunities for people to find their voice, share their stories, and discover, learn and connect.


What I'm working on

  1. Wavetable: a creative studio blending entertainment and education
  2. My own content: articles, a newsletter, podcasts, and more
  3. Helping others: Teaching, Speaking, Coaching, Mentoring
  4. Fondo: a navigation portal for career explorers, adventurers, and guides

Here’s more on what I’m doing now.

Here’s my Bio


Questions I seek to answer

Much of my work revolves around these questions:

How can I feel better equipped to do the work I want to do in the world?
How can education be less dry and disconnected?
Where are the stories of entrepreneurs I can actually relate to?
Wtf does my next career chapter look like?

And perhaps most importantly of all...

Where can I find the perfect breakfast?

Some other (possibly) useful information:

  • My core values are Freedom, Curiosity, Collaboration, Learning by Doing, and Inclusivity
  • If I’m good at anything it’s probably investigating, designing, and communicating ideas. Especially all three together. While drinking coffee
  • I’m a Gemini, Enneagram Type 5, left-handed, and very tall

Other stuff I'm into...

  • Music (techno, post-punk, afrobeat and a lot more – I’m also considering coming out of DJ retirement…let’s see)
  • Boxing (southpaw)
  • Football/soccer (centre-back to play, Crystal Palace to watch – both are erratic and unglamorous, but sometimes pretty effective)
  • Traveling (wherever I can)
  • Improv & Standup Comedy (trying not to be a 3rd rate Larry David)
  • Yoga (frog, on a very good day)
  • Cycling (single speed)
  • Kayaking (slowly)
  • Reading (mainly non-fiction plus some Nordic noir)
  • Cooking (Ottolenghi style)

Recommendations

I’ve collected some of my favourite podcasts, playlists, books, and other things. Check 'em out.

Here's are some of the tools and technologies I use in my work.

Here’s my Origin Story and a few of my past lives.


Get in touch

  1. Email: This is usually the best way to get in touch. Although I read 100% of emails, I can't promise a response to absolutely everything. If you reply to my Adventures... newsletter with a specific question or comment, the chances I'll reply are far higher.
  2. Social Media: If you've got a short message or question, please tweet @HowardGray and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. You can also try Instagram DMs but I don't check 'em that often
  3. In person: I love meeting up with people in-person (no, really.). If you're in NYC some time and want to get together, send me an email.
