How did you get into what you do?
I started programming BASIC on a ZX Spectrum 128K and making games when I was knee-high to grasshopper. Always loved technology so left school and read books about coding, infrastructure, marketing and business on the walk to work every day.
Why are you passionate about what you do?
I am desperately driven to create brilliant things and to make the world a better place. I also do everything possible to stay away from boredom – life is way too short.
What's been your career highlight to date?
Too many to mention, but I loved the fact I was pitching in boardrooms to VCs at 18 years old. Moving the agency to specialise in human behaviour was a brave decision. Meeting Becky and Paul (and having Reflect in LAB Group) was the biggest recent highlight.
What do you love to do that may not be mentioned above?
I am hugely passionate about sailing, coaching kids rugby, fishing, gardening … and I wouldn’t say no to the occasional Old Fashioned!!
