Who is WHO in our TEAM?
Szebastian-One™ - Founder / Chief Executive Officer
Originally a Technical Consultant & ICT Trainer, Szebastian-One™ is a multi-talented bag of contradicting talents or interests as he calls it. He is an Wellbeing and Lifestyle eCorrespondent for his self named website Szebastian-One , author of Sex and the Olives, motivational speaker, hobby photographer and a self confessed beyond-rehab twitter addict who is often found in his aussieBum underwear, weather permitting. He loves his gym, rock climbing, 10-pin bowling, Australian football (and an avid supporter of Geelong Football Club), photography and swimming (but does not know how to swim properly – truth!). On a more serious note he is involved with various charities & not-for-profit organizations either as a delegate, or a volunteer or where it is not possible to be physically involved he is a regular financial contributor. Human Rights, GLBTIQ Rights, Children Rights, Animal Welfare & Nature Conservation are movements that are very close to his heart. He is also actively involved with all the U-Campaigns of the Urban Men™, Worldwide And oh he hates sweets …. Unbelievable but true!
Shy by nature, Mexican by origin, this spunky guy from Arizona, USA is amazing with his mother tongue Spanish (why wouldn’t he be?). He loves to teach Spanish to people from non-Spanish background and is known for his humour. Juan loves travel and adventure and oh turning himself off from technology is so easy for him, one can only wonder how he manages to do that in this day and age. He loves his nieces and nephews and amazing family as much as he loves Brazil … now we won’t go there. Like a true American he loves his politics, research and has an interesting penchant for reading and youtube viewing on conspiracy theories. No wonder he loves to edit, cut, chop and then present the best pieces to our audience. Secretly we all hate him … no just joking! And oh, changing his hairstyle ever so often is one thing Juan is very well known for – we never know what is coming next.
Hi Tech Mother™ has spent decades in social welfare, public speaking, politics and human rights campaigns and she brings her plethora of experience that helps us improve and maintain ourselves as a family friendly website (but yes for members of the family who are 18+). Otherwise known as Santosh, she loves to tweet and facebook and possibly is one of the very first Indian Women who not only uses technology on daily basis but loves it. An amazing cook, she has recipes of lifetime that will make your mouth water and want more and more. She is known for her hospitality, human rights activism and love of dogs. We are told though there was a time she hated the idea of a pet but since last 2 decades she can’t think of a day without her pets in her life. She is the one who you’ll hear from if you wanted to discuss the ‘official statements’ … big words .. huh?
Eddie loves to travel and he travels for work, for leisure, for joy and for pleasure. He does not need an excuse to travel, he just needs time, booking and destination and he is ready to fly. Starting 2012 Eddie will contribute to Urban Travel ™ Section and bring to you some amazing destinations worth exploring. So if you love travelling, or you have not travelled in a long time or this is your first big travel, you know who is your man – Eddie ofcourse. Eddie also has a penchant for photography, so we hope to include lots of photos from his travels as they happen. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada Eddie hates cold weather, well aren’t you a big misfit in your brith place then Mr. Eddie? Or may be that is why he travels a lot and enjoys it as much, staying away from the cold and the snow! In his spare time he loves going out with his friends and networking worldwide using various means of technology. Though this is a secret not too well known that he hates technology and yet secretly enjoys the gadgets. Now go figure that one out!
Michael Dean, according to Szebastian-One™ is a “Role Model” model who is much more than just being a handsome guy strutting down the ramp sporting branded clothing and a flawless smile. Michael initially was short listed to be the U Talent in 2011 for the Urban Men, Worldwide website but in the process his passion for Youth Suicide Prevention U-Campaign and overall impressive and strong character made him a favourite amongst the Urban Men, family. He won hearts with his determination, strength and passion towards life, career and beating the odds. Today, Michael is the official ambassador of the Urban Men, Worldwide as well the face of Youth Suicide Prevention U-Campaign and is passionately spreading the word of support and care to unite the community to bring all kinds of bullying to an end by creating awareness. He would be the most professional, polite and down to earth model there can be; who knows too well how to flirt with the camera and to make others smile and yet live life on his own terms – hence a true “Role Model” model for today’s youth!
These contributors run their own independent blogs and have been kind enough to allow us to repost the posts from their blogs and we are honoured to do so and hope you enjoy their posts as much as we do. C Kicks - Cultural Correspondent
Until recently C Kicks was a Melbournian with a load of randomness, long sleepless nights that led to anti-social sleepy days. For a 21 YO he thinks way above his age, writes a mean piece of blog and cooks amazing food. Ok we lied about the cooking. Since July 2011, now C Kicks is a Chilean and his adventures of Chile will be seen often in our blog not to mention the funny stories and incidents he’ll come across will now be penned down with mixed emotions and we look forward to bring it all to you all the way from Chile. C Kicks finds fun and amusements in smallest of things and given his shyness it is one big step he has taken to move to Chile all by himself – first step out of home and its directly overseas! GO C KICKS! He intends to teach English in Chile (Oh dear!!) but that’s quite okay, Australian is very close to English and I am sure whatever happens, there will be stories to be told and where will you find them? Right here! C Kicks prefer not to release his photo and we certainly respect that!
Guy, Interrupted is the alter-ego of Kristian Johns, a thirtysomething editor and writer from South London, who has been dubbed ‘the male Carrie Bradshaw’ — which he secretly rather enjoys, but will never admit. Sometimes, funny, sometimes heartfelt, sometimes controversial, always entertaining, he chronicles his adventures ‘careening around London like a pinball in an arcade game’ in the award-winning blog, Sex, Drugs and Sausage Rolls: London life, love and other random stuff. His first short story, Dying and Other Superpowers, from the anthology Boys and Girls (edited by Paul Burston) received favourable reviews. He is currently working on his first full-length novel, which expands on the Dying and Other Superpowers world. In his spare time he enjoys rock music, drinking too much coffee, tweeting rather a lot, and watching superhero films. In 2011 more Kristian’s blog received more than 100,000 hits and that is just the tip of the iceberg!
Dan is a self confessed Facebook junkie. He is loved and ‘hated’ (in lack of a better word) for numerous status updates and most random things he comes up with. In previous life he must have been a stand up comedian, in this one he can barely stand straight. Joke! He claims to have what some would call an over active imagination. It is amazing how a full time farmer boy overflows with creative juices and he ended up with a blog of us his own (checkout Suburban Llama). It does not end there, he is now in the process of producing and directing …given he has already been a Mobile DJ, a script writer, a poet and a short film producer. Looks like he is going to master all trades before he becomes a billionaire so he can tap it all at once – as soon as he gets famous. You know who our BEST friend will be don’t you? *giggles* . He claims he does not take life too seriously but he is as great a mate as they come when it comes to caring and being protective for people he loves. He’ll deny that – or may be not. He IS a lot of fun!!
