What I Do

I like to take an active involvement with companies I advise and/or invest in.

I have a range of experience and so I'm always delighted to provide council (where I can) on any topic founders wish to ask me. Additionally, I may be pulled in to assist with key technical and product decisions - such as switching to a new technology, a change in object model, new user experience/interaction flows, etc - and I'm always delighted to provide additional thoughts on these kinds of topics.

I have many years experience building companies with strong and successful developer platforms and API programs. I have also worked as a technical product manager for both consumer and b2b orientated products.

Finally, I'm always happy to extend my network of smart folks here in SF/Silicon Valley and back home in London - from engineers through to the investment community.
