About Me

I shape and build technology platforms that enable new businesses and ways of working

I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur from an early age, when I used to make games and sell them to my mates at school. Even then I knew I would pursue a career in the development of digital businesses.

In 1995 I finished a degree in Computer Science, and in 2006 an MBA, but my real education has come from engaging with people at all levels in business to learn how technology platforms transform organisations by improving customer interactions and relationships, and enabling operational efficiencies.

I’ve worked for some amazing companies, and on some amazing projects. I’ve enjoyed being part of the transformation of three investments platforms, migrating 100s of $billions in assets. Building technology that touches the lives of millions of people gives me a massive buzz, and it’s also a huge responsibility.

When I was invited to join a neuromarketing business to develop its platform, it was then that the sheer limitless potential of neurotechnology became apparent. Truthsayers is the perfect outlet for my creativity and thought leadership.

In my spare time (when I have it) I love nothing more than crafting unique ales and cheese, at home in the Cotswolds. If I retire, I’ll run my own 3D cooking and brewing channel.
