I was born in the splendid city of Bath in the UK. At a relatively young age, my parents dragged me to Africa – a continent I was once told “was not for sissies”.
A Long sojourn under African skies followed where I gained a questionable education and great sun tan. Advertising was always my passion and so spent my formative years as a budding copywriter at Grey International South Africa, before joining the advertising fraternity in London.
A series of stints with , BBDO, Cato Johnson, Y&R and Ogilvy & Mather followed – loved Ogilvy’s work! I was somehow dispatched to the world’s most southern capital, Wellington, New Zealand, where I teamed up with American Robert Anderson, renowned Everest mountaineer and all round adventurer . Together we built the Ogilvy & Mather Direct brand to be the biggest in Australasia.
All things must pass and eventually I started my own agency with David Meo, to form Logan Meo & Walters based in the land of the long white cloud.
We moved in the early 90′s to Australia to the rather unlikely location of the Gold Coast, Queensland and over the next twenty year thrived under the sub-tropical sun . In late 2o10 LMW was acquired by a smart agency out of Melbourne aptly named Smart Mccan .
I have two wonderful daughters, Hannah, who works
in the film industry, based in Vancouver, Canada and Hope, who is still enduring the final years of her university education.
I am married to Elisabeth who is a rather clever individual who’s ESL skills allow us to travel far and wide, a pastime I love.
I now write books and base myself in Bali for up to ten months of each year.It’s a sexy job….however it’s yet to pay for the cat food, but Im working on it?
