  • Working across markets including consumer and B2B technology, often with startups in that space, I spend a lot of my time writing, tweeting and talking to the media to get messages out to the world. I love getting to grips with the complicated issues surrounding my clients to ensure the media gets the full picture. Away from work, I can be found trawling record shops, spending a month’s pay in one go, or indulging my passion for live music. I also hold a Master's degree in social history, can play four instruments and was once described as a 'man of international mystery' by 6 Music DJ Mark Radcliffe.
