A number of years ago, when I was still living in London, I was asked to make a promotional video for a conference in Lisbon, Portugal (I proposed to my wife at that conference). When I had moved to the UK, I met family members that I didn't even know existed a few years ago. I made this video with my brother Greg.
I was quite pleased with how the video turned and later, at the request of a few people, I released the promo outtakes. Warning: strong language ahead!
He still lives in London, sharing a flat with another brother we didn't know about while growing up, Lewis. Our sister Lynne lives in Stoke-on-Trent a few hours north and we have a sister, Gayle, living in Texas, closer to where our mother lives. Our father, Jim, lives in Germany, and I've a few uncles, aunts and cousins scattered hither and yon.
I only knew my mother and sister growing up (aside from two other brothers who are dead), so finding out I had so many brothers and sisters came as quite a shock to me. I still remember the first time talking to my newfound sister Lynne that I wanted to live in the UK. A year later, I was. Interesting the turns life takes, yes?
Anyway, off to the Hackathon. See you in a few days!
