Leading the creation & growth of digital products

Why I work in technology

I believe in the power of technology to enrich people’s lives, and I'm passionate about shaping a better experience for customers and organisations.

To do this I lead cross-functional, agile teams to create and grow innovative products. I provide strategy, leadership and technical expertise to solve user's problems.

I've worked in leadership roles in the media, energy, travel and education sectors since 2001, so I have a wealth of experience to help organisations shape, develop and grow their products.
