You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Crowdsourcing • Social Media • Social Media Marketing • User Experience Design • User Interface Design

Key Accomplishments

I've been involved in several startups, most notably, where as a cofounder I was responsible for raising $2m of funding, assembling and managing the product team, acting as product owner. Evly was acquired in 2013 and has since raised a further round of VC funding.

Before this I designed and sold 16 mobile phones to Nokia which changed the way they approached design, ergonomics, choice of materials and marketing for years to come.

Most recently I founded and act as the CEO at Springleap, which recently won Techstars Pitchnite, the United Nations World Summit award for most innovative business and Mentorcamp Global Finals.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I'm supportive, but don't hold back. I believe that the job of an advisor is to help make the company and the CEO stronger. This often means telling people exactly what you think - some entrepreneurs rise to that occasion and others do not.

There is a careful balance that an advisor should seek, between adding real measurable value that is meaningful to the particular startup case, being supportive of a team trying to accomplish incredibly tough goals, right through to being brutally honest when the occasion arises.
