I'm a Product Manager at Founders Factory where I run the team behind Away Away, an influencer lead travel platform and booking site. I have also co-founded an advise a number of companies including Homestead, PeerPay, morrama and BLKBK amongst others.



Working internationally, founding startups and leading creative teams, has helped me gain an understanding of how business and design can be used together.  I often talk at events about my experience of working in tech in London and San Francisco, and what it's like being a design founder.


Outside of work I spend my time Snowboarding, SurfingSailing and serving at my local church. I have taught windsurfing in Greece and Turkey and have been a fully qualified sailing instructor. Above is my latest instagram picture. You should follow me!
