I have more than 25 years' experience as an Executive Director, 12 years in the FTSE 100/250, 3 IPO’s and 14 M&A transactions; extensive background in content, media, internet and telecoms - small start-ups to large global corporates, disruptive technology and high growth, listed, private, and VC/PE backed businesses.
I live and (for the most part) work in London, but I'm fortunate in that I get to travel a lot. My work usually takes me all over Europe and beyond (and in between - I'm regularly in the Channel Islands). London is however the place where you'll find me more often than not.
The iPhone is a constant companion. Here is a selection of images taken from my Instagram Travels with an iPhone series.
