About me

I bring people together to make good ideas happen. My current project is Library of Things– a start-up on a mission to make borrowing better than buying. More affordable, more convenient and more socially rewarding. I'm leading the charge to find communities across London who want to start a Library of Things site where they are. I'm also looking for investors who believe in Library of Things to support the development of our replicable smart borrowing kiosk. My previous projects include developing community workspace Impact Hub Brixton, community business network Open Project Night, surplus food sharing initiative People's Fridge Brixton, as well as various neighbourhood-level leadership programmes. I'm also an advisor and trainer, delivering consultancy and training with community organisations, public sector bodies & corporates around: + Participatory design + Sustainable business models for community assets + Crowdfunding & fundraising + Volunteer recruitment & management + Hosting & facilitating + Creating community-owned sharing economy platforms
