Short Bio

Born in London, I was set to become a product designer having attended Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, but decided to become a tech entrepreneur instead.

Some of my early startup ventures included Corsellis-Montford Interactive (a digital media consultancy) acquired by New Media Industries Group plc, and iCollector plc (online auction platform), acquired by Able Auctions Inc.

After successfully exiting, I completed a part-time MBA while helping to establish the FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship (F1 is one of my passions). Although great fun, after a couple of years I realised that the motor racing industry wasn’t for me, so quit.

The following month I drove across the Sahara in a Land Rover with a small team of two intrepid entrepreneurs and a couple of experienced desert explorers. The team included the land speed legend, Richard Noble OBE, and the co-founder of a dynamic health food company, Crispin Clay.

After returning from the desert, I moved up to Scotland to become an entrepreneur in residence at Edinburgh University where I was embedded within the Artificial Intelligence Applications Institute.

During my tenure I met, and remain good friends with, many extremely bright and entrepreneurial Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence grads including Tom Griffiths (FanDuel co-founder), and my colleague, Dr Tim Willis.

While at Edinburgh Uni, I founded a social commerce company (Vibio UK Ltd), built a development team in Scotland, set up a US subsidiary (Vibio Inc), and opened an office in San Francisco.

In 2012 I returned to London where I was offered the opportunity to work with a pioneer in the Internet of Things (IoT) sector. This experience sent my career in a new and exciting direction…

I now work with a team that operates a website called WEB3//IOT. It attracts tens of thousands of active users, and we also host a monthly Internet of Things Meetups in Edinburgh. In addition, I am also a co-founder of Nautilus Beam Ltd, which has developed a smartwatch chat app called Tusi, that features a unique user interface as well as advanced word prediction technology.
