Pitching a business concept at the QUT C3 conference

Hi! I’m Nick McIntosh.

This website is my personal blog and it’s where I keep track of some of my ideas and thoughts – it’s my internet home base.

Here you can find some of the projects I’ve worked on, the experiments I’ve tried, and generally what’s grabbing my attention.

I spend a lot of my time in the world of entrepreneurship and internet start-ups – I’m a Product Manager at App Annie.  But my passions extent into marketing, psychology and lifestyle design.

But what do I actually do?
