Mike Medaglia & Darren Shill, Co-Founders
Mike Medaglia (left) started in self-publishing many years ago where he edited a comics anthology exploring ideas of spirituality called Wu Wei. This eventually lead to him producing the best selling inspirational One Year Wiser series published by SelfMadeHero. He was also an art editor at Jessica Kingsley Publishers for a number of years, where he produced a line of comic books about subjects such as dementia, PTSD and Asperger’s Syndrome. At the beginning of 2017 he became a full time author/artist. Find him on Twitter and Instagram @mikemedaglia.
Darren Shill (right) has been a reader of the tarot for himself and others for over 25 years and an ardent fan of the I Ching for nearly as long. Current passions include cooking for the family and the practice of Tai Chi and Qi Gong.
Professionally, Darren worked for 14 years at the private equity management firm Electra Partners, where he was Financial Controller and for the last 6 of those years a Partner. During that time he was involved in the fund raising of a €1bn and a €1.25bn European fund and was Financial Controller for one of London’s oldest and most successful listed private equity investment trusts, Electra Private Equity.
