I’m a digital entrepreneur and investor.
I have a love for creating businesses that make a positive contribution to the world – shaping the vision, inspiring people and leading it through to success.
I’ve won awards for entrepreneurship, fast business growth and technology innovation such as Highly Commended Entrepreneur of the Year from the National Business Awards, The Sunday Times Tech Track and Deloitte Tech Fast 50 and 500 across EMEA.
I have an engineering and languages background, and started my career at Accenture where I was a management consultant in Comms and High Tech. In 2004 I founded Net Media Planet, now known as NMPi. We became one of the largest performance marketing specialists internationally and then created an agency that is ranked as a top 10 digital marketing and technology agency in the UK. We helped clients such as Microsoft Store, Neiman Marcus and Singapore Airlines to find new customers across 100 countries and in 55 languages. Bootstrapping and self funded to £8 million annual revenue, I successfully sold and exited the business in the summer of 2015.
In the summer of 2016, I won a scholarship, as part of 80 people selected worldwide, on an exponential technologies innovation program at Singularity University, housed at NASA’s Research Centre in Silicon Valley.
