howAfter five years as editor of FHM magazine, Hagen Engler left the mag to start work as an independent writer. For this, he won the “Worst Career Move Ever” award at his school reunion. He is still busily trying to prove his classmates wrong as he ekes out a living from his lounge, writing for print titles, websites, corporate clients and agencies.

In between, he dodges nappy duty, watches SuperSport and tries to postpone the first beer of the day as late as possible. He is completing a book commissioned by Jacana and blogging at in between music and spoken word performances and his radio show.

He will discuss edited highlights of his FHM career, abandoning corporate life and setting up on his own, and the epic wins and fails of a year spent on the couch in his underpants.
