SynapseChronicles is my online home. Who am I?
My name is Grant Young, and I’m an urbanite living in Katoomba, Australia.
I am a singer-songwriter, primarily performing on guitar and bass. Most recently I fronted Sydney band Fuzu. Our Reverb Nation profile has some tracks from the EPs we produced. I’m currently exploring solo recording and performance projects.
In 2012 I completed my Masters in Sustainable Practice. My studies revolved around the themes of design thinking, local food, mobile services for behaviour change, shared value and small business.
And I’m a mad keen mountain bikerâ€”I love riding the trails up and around the Blue Mountains (and beyond) and have kinda become a bit obsessive about it of late.
On this blog I write about lots of stuff that I’m passionate aboutâ€”sustainable living, music, politics and other meanderings. Given I work in areas that I’m passionate about, I sometimes write here about things that are related to my work. But please don’t confuse what gets written here with the thoughts and position of my employer or my clientsâ€”this weblog contains my thoughts alone. But you were smart enough to work that out already, weren’t you 😉
Feel free to register with this site (so I know you’re not a spambot) and let me know your thoughts about anything I post. Just keep it on topic and civil, and I’m sure we’ll get along. Anyone starts name-calling or getting nasty and personal and my bouncers will have you out of here faster than you can spell “troll” 😉 Oh, and if you’re leaving a comment about a business or organisation you are affiliated with, please disclose that affiliation in your comment.
But enough about me. I hope you get some value out of what I have to say and share.
Light, love and peace. G
