About me

I've been working in digital media & technology since 1996. During that time I have worked across 3 continents: Europe, Asia and North America. I am highly experienced and skilled in strategy, marketing, data analysis and business development. I am currently looking for my next opportunity having returned to the UK after a decade in New York. I am entrepreneurial, highly driven, personable and thrive with challenges.
