When I’m not in the office, you’ll probably find me indulging in my two other passions: property development and aviation. I love getting my hands dirty on building sites, and I also have a goal to get my Private Pilot’s Licence. And when I need to cool off, I head to Wales to take a dip in an icy lake.

Agile Consulting, Training & Speaking
Digital & Physical Products
I’ve had the experience of working with some of the biggest brands in the world and leading teams to create truly amazing products. From early java-based mobile apps to interactive global experiences and beyond, I’ve been a part of some seriously cool projects.
Take my work with Beats By Dre, for example. My team helped build an unprecedented social following by pioneering influencer marketing and fan-created content. The huge launch event for Nike’s physical products in London, used massive data visualisation projection mapping driven by live attendee data to bring the event to life.
I’ve also been a part of some unique projects, like supporting Tempest programme, a next generation fighter jet with BAE Systems and even launching the vegan meatball marina for Subway. These show my ability to tackle diverse and challenging projects, and bring teams together to achieve great things.
But it’s not just about creating flashy, attention-grabbing products. I’ve also worked in large banking enterprises to drive big transformations, and have coached leaders to help them reach their full potential. I understand the complexities of working in regulated industries and the importance of building high-performing, agile teams.
