Writer and editor. Author of Mean Streets and Raging Bulls: The Legacy of Film Noir in Contemporary American Cinema. Co-author of The Neo-Generalist: Where You Go is Who You Are. Ghostwriter of Return of the Vikings: Nordic Leadership in Times of Extreme Change.

My writing services embrace books, articles, white papers and blog posts. Topics covered include neo-generalism, cultural studies, business, literary criticism, film history and sport. These reflect personal research interests, as well as practical experience gained working in a range of industries in the public, private and non-profit sectors. Among them, education, publishing, consultancy, health and transport.

I offer bespoke editorial and advisory services, assisting authors with their writing projects. This entails working closely with them on the life cycle of their books and articles, from initial idea through to completed manuscript. I provide guidance on structure, style, voice, grammar and content, and serve as sounding board and critical friend.

What’s in a name?

A note on the meaning of indalogenesis. An índalo is a prehistoric symbol of a man carrying a rainbow found in southeastern Spain. It was adopted as the regional symbol of Almería, an area where I lived when very young. The symbol is personal to me because of its association with childhood memories. But it also bears the weight of cultural history. I strongly believe in the importance of legacy thinking: respecting the lessons of the past, acting in the present, serving the future. The índalo is a permanent reminder for me.

What about Genesis? Quite simply, it is the brand of road bike that I currently own. I am a cycling fan, and find the bike helps me think and write. My interest in professional road cycling has informed my ideas about the responsive and adaptive organisation. Of course, genesis is also suggestive of new beginnings, new opportunities.

  1. I’ve worked with Richard on 2 projects, my 9th and 10th editions of The Organization in the Digital Age. I recommend him highly if you are looking for writing (and thinking) support.
