He'd spent years flitting between jobs, searching for the fulfilment he could never find.Then he had a moment of realisation, asking himself a question that he'd asked himself plenty of times. But this time, he was so frustrated, that the answer that came was crazy and impossible. So crazy that he dismissed it.But it led his to where he is now: the successful, in-demand creative founder of Retronaut, the archive photography blog that became a huge success within weeks of launching, and which has led to all sorts of other projects.Retronaut wasn't born out of a grand plan, but a genuine passion.
