I have hands-on experience building and selling an internet based company and a fairly interesting network of people.
In 1996 I initiated AME Info with a view to enhance communication for businesses in the region. AME Info became the leading provider of business and financial information in and about the Middle East.
In March 2005, HSBC Private Equity Middle East Ltd. acquired a significant equity stake in AME Info FZ LLC and on the 4th of July 2006, London-based Emap plc (EMA.L) announced that Emap Communications, its business-to-business (B2B) division, acquired AME Info.

In 2008 I launched RingtoneFeeder together with the talented Geoff Smith which continues to be a lot of fun.
To make use of my experience I have established evershift in 2011 to first of all provide comprehensive media, online strategies and business development for companies and individuals alike.
Secondly, evershift will serve as a vehicle to make direct investments with focus on intellectual property rights including but not limited to music rights.
