I found and lead ventures that enable entrepreneurship, development and the revitalisation of cities and their neighbourhoods.

These ventures have been credited with raising £0.5bn+ ($650m) of new investment and creating many new jobs.

They include projects in the U.K., Russia, Eastern Europe and Canada and progressive enterprises such as the Wild Blue Cohort angel investor network and People’s Supermarket, London.

At present, my work is centred upon tech, social venturing, venture investment and real estate; and I am a Founder with the Zinv.VC tech accelerator.

My background is in media. I have produced, directed and executive produced 100hrs+ of specialist factual and documentary television programmes for BBC Television, Channel 4, National Geographic and CNN.

My work has been extensively featured by the international media, including the New York Times, Sunday Times, China Daily and Monocle. It has won several prominent awards, including the public space category of the Stirling Architectural Prize, and I was named in the Centre for Entrepreneurs/Maserati 100 (2016).
