About

Here’s me in 30 seconds or so:

I’m an educator, leadership coach, and project builder based in NYC (originally from London).

I believe we all have the potential to go beyond: to do more original, creative and interesting things to further ourselves, the people around us, and the wider world.

I aim to help people do just that: to go from here to there.

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

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

My eclectic background includes founding and successfully exiting two companies; managing the touring careers of creative artists performing in over 60 countries; working with a range of technology startups across health & fitness, sustainability, and ecommerce; building knowledge sharing systems at a Ministry of Defence technology lab; and promoting raves in the forests of South-East England.

Outside of work some of the things I enjoy include:

  • Music (techno, post-punk, afrobeat and a lot more – I’m also considering coming out of DJ retirement…let’s see)
  • Boxing (southpaw)
  • Football/soccer (centre-back to play, Crystal Palace to watch – both are erratic and unglamorous, but sometimes pretty effective)
  • Traveling (wherever I can)
  • Improv & Standup Comedy (trying not to be a 3rd rate Larry David)
  • Yoga (frog, on a very good day)
  • Cycling (single speed)
  • Kayaking (slowly)
  • Reading (mainly non-fiction plus some Nordic noir)
  • Cooking (from the Gjelina cookbook)

Other (possibly) useful information: I’m a Gemini, INFJ, Enneagram Type 5, left-handed, and very tall.

Here’s my Bio & Origin Story. I’ve also had a few Past Lives.

And here are some of my favourite things right now.
