Managing Director
Accenture Interactive

20 years experience in the Digital field working with BBC, BT, MTV, Virgin Media, BP, Shell, SSE, E.on, The London Stock Exchange, City & Guilds, The Cabinet Office, NHS Direct, and over 50 Universities. 

I am a collector of active hobbies and odd skills. I love to sail, ski, row and horse ride, cook dinner for 20 people, and of course practiced a bit of unicycling and juggling in my past. Realistically most of this is now done with my two boys Toby and Ben who I try my best to exhaust!

Career highlights include building BBC Radio 1's first website, the first online music download charts for MTV, creating the London Underground's first customer facing website and creating much of Shell's early web and intranet properties. I created the earliest prototypes for BT Interactive TV, led The Cabinet Office's consolidation of 65 web properties into 2 major portals and guided experience design for the award winning digital self diagnosis and referral services for NHS Direct. 

I hold MBA (With Distinction) from Cass Business School. Cass EMBA - independently rated 4th in the UK and one of the top 25 EMBA programmes in the World. (Economist Global EMBA rankings 2013).
