David Fallick

About Author
David’s two years in the public service convinced him that there could be a better way to spend his days than auditing seagulls. Stumbling into advertising sales (thanks to his former wife’s boss) and being a bear of somewhat limited imagination, he’s persevered with this pursuit despite considerable sage counsel that he should cease and desist. So it’s been forty years of roller-coasting through all aspects of advertising and, more recently, publishing with highlights such as being the founding publisher of BRW and Personal Investor followed a few years later with the same role at Time Australia. Tiring of corporate politics and endless meetings, in 1988 he established Indigo Arch Publishing to explore “self-employment” (ie, easing into retirement) and custom publishing. YourLifeChoices evolved (tortuously) from this company and David is proud of his glacial transition from print to the new-fangled online media which, he hopes, is not just another flash in the pan!

Redfern Now

No number of promos could have prepared the viewer for just how riveting this new, indigenous drama

Movie Reviews

Monsieur Lazhar

This is a quiet, not so little, (at 94 minutes) movie, which is both contemporary and uplifting.
