I am the Technology Director and co-founder of Fresh Thinking Group (FTG), an independent capital investment organisation that reforms distressed companies, nurtures start-ups, and develops growth strategies for healthy businesses. As the company lead for all things tech and a seasoned web developer and project manager I have cultivated software solutions for a wealth of FTG’s acquisitions and employ a consultancy-led approach to management, advising teams on how to best streamline their technological systems.

I considered myself both mentor and manager and therefore advise teams on all areas of technology while curating environments that enable developers to enhance their skills and achieve optimal outcomes.

I specialise in e-commerce and software development and have created award-winning technology solutions that enable frictionless user experience and team communication. I am in the process of completing my certification in Scrum, a framework that enables businesses to address adaptable problems to deliver the best possible outcomes. FTG uses Scrum’s heuristic approach to smoothly manage the development queue.

Over the last decade, I have worked with a multitude of notable brands, including Google, Matalan, and SimplyBe. My user experience, new-age media, and web marketing background allows me to be instrumental to the redevelopment of business structures for companies that FTG has acquired and invested in. FTG’s recent acquisitions include the on-demand laundry service Laundrapp, the Cuhu mobile-development app, the national logistics company GLB Transport and most recently, the digital agency, Skylab.
