I’ve spent the majority of my career working at the intersection of creativity, business and technology with a wide variety of talented and ambitious people.

Currently I’m based in New York and shuttle between there, London and a few other places too.

There are 4 main areas that underpin what I’m interested in:

Education, Experiences, Entrepreneurship, Entertainment

I’m exploring where these areas can be fused, remixed and reimagined.

Companies usually hire me to do one (or more) of these things:

  • envision, build, launch and grow new ventures and products
  • design and run professional development programs
  • curate and connect talent

I often get involved when companies, people or projects are going through a period of discovery, growth or change. Maybe it’s something to do with being INFJ.

During my career I’ve spent several years in the music industry as a talent agent, publisher, entrepreneur and (occasional) DJ; been a project manager at digital advertising agencies; and worked with a range of technology startups across health & fitness, media, entertainment and ecommerce.

 

Outside of work some of the things I enjoy include:

  • Boxing (southpaw)
  • Music (techno, post-punk, afrobeat and a lot more)
  • Football/soccer (centre-back to play, Crystal Palace to watch – both are erratic and unglamorous, but sometimes pretty effective)
  • Cycling (single speed)
  • Traveling (wherever I can)
  • Yoga (frog, on a good day)
  • Improv (just started, trying not to be a 3rd rate Larry David)
  • Reading (mainly non fiction plus some Nordic noir)
  • Cooking (from the Gjelina cookbook)
