With 24 years of experience in the financial technology sector, I am a prominent international figure within the FX industry. My detailed research in editorial and televised form is often the central point of information for executives within all sectors of the global FX business.

In August 2015 I, along with Noam Stiekema and a series of industry executives, founded FinanceFeeds and became CEO. FinanceFeeds is an interactive news and research source for the online trading industry, reporting closely from within the industry. The company works closely from within platform vendors, electronic brokerages, software providers, ancillary suppliers and institutional FX companies worldwide to provide accurate research and news that helps you drive your business forward.

FinanceFeeds is the only FX and electronic trading industry source which is interactive, bringing the thoughts and activities of the global leaders of the industry, whether institutional or retail, to you from the inside.

Previously, I took LeapRate into the investigative and research-based content arena internationally. Interacted with all of the senior executives of large retail, institutional brokerages worldwide, technology vendors, ancillary providers and conference venues to report from within the industry.

One of the original FX industry journalists at Finance Magnates, I conducted research and compiled industry reports, taking Forex Magnates from its initial place as a three-person firm, contributing to its worldwide place as a large FX industry research and news source. reported live reguarly from industry conferences, and conducted research which I published in up to six specialist articles per day.

Prior to writing about the industry, I ran a technology solutions consultancy within the electronic trading and education sectors between January 1994 and January 2012, just over 18 years.

The international consultancy, Palmira Solutions Ltd, where I was CEO and Managing Director, provided software services consultancy specialising in transition and platform/application delivery in Enterprise environments and retail and institutional FX R&D and provisioning.

In 1991 I entered this industry, spending two years as an apprentice PBX switch and Cisco Router engineer on migration team which provided outsourced network solutions to electronic institutional trading desks within banks at British Telecommunications Plc.
