About

I’m determined to put a (positive) dent in the universe.

I’ve previously started and sold a bunch of startups, raising over $50m in funding, and assisting in $100m+ exits.

As for specific roles, I was Chief Executive Officer at miDrive (raised $8m), Chief Product Officer at Livedrive (exited to j2 Global), and Chief Operating Officer at Zillion Commerce.

I launched my first business age 15 and have been hooked ever since. Over the course of the past 12 years I’ve launched and sold a bunch of web based businesses, everything from an F1 ticketing company to a Maldives travel agency.

I’m an advisor to London based venture capital firm EC1 Capital and Richard Branson’s Virgin Startup.

Last year I wrote a book, “10 Minute Guide to Fundraising: Get Funding for your Startup“. I was also included in Forbes 30 Under 30.

In my spare time, I like to travel, take photos, and oil painting.

Fan of Alan Watts, Banksy, Naval Ravikant, Ben Howard, and Bill Gates.
