As a technologist, I specialize in digital transformation and have been a technology leader for major global brands including Apple, Comic Relief, Google, IBM, Marks and Spencer, National Geographic and most recently T-Mobile.
My passion for technology started at the tender age of eight when I was taught to program on a ZX81 by my wonderful primary school teacher, Mr. Martin.
Since then, I have owned and operated over a dozen different types of computer and pride myself on maintaining multiple technical certifications while continuing to expand my strategic leadership experience.
I have led the development of some critical platforms and systems that have impacted millions of lives. There are many highlights, but I’m particularly proud to have:
- Delivered FROST (Fundraising Operating System Two) which powers Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day and Sport Relief events, and which was an industry-leading example of agile software development.
- Led the creation of the Accessibility Center of Excellence at Apple which helped to make Apple’s e-commerce platform one of the most accessible in the world.
- Built the Product & Technology team at National Geographic which developed the platforms, systems and apps that powered National Geographic’s digital transformation and serve hundreds of millions of customers every day.
- Kicked-off Google’s involvement in the Ki project that delivered the world’s first AI-driven insurance syndicate for Brit Insurance.
