Singapore

I was born in Brighton, England; the same year that Intel released the world's first microprocessor, the NASDAQ commenced trading and the Stones had a UK number 1 with Brown Sugar.

I started developing software at computer camp in the summer of 82 on a PDP-11, a year before i got my C=64 and started down the road I find myself on today.

For the last 14 years I've lived in Singapore, where, amongst other things, I founded what was to become Singapore's largest independent video game studio, developing titles for mobile and console platforms.

Prior to that, I lived on the French/Swiss border, working at CERN, the birthplace of the World Wide Web as a senior system's programer, where I oversaw the various Unix operating system reference platforms used at CERN and looked after info.cern.ch, the worlds first web server - although by that time, it was running on a battered SPARCstation and not the original NeXT workstation of lore.

After leaving CERN, I lived in Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, London and Australia working on both new ventures and undertaking various consultancy roles before moving to Asia and starting my first business in 1999.

I’m currently CEO / Founder of KWL (Know Whats Loved) a big-data marketing analytics company that serves the music, live entertainment and advertising industries.
