About Me

9 years in the Navy (UK) 2008-2017
1 year bomb disposal in Kosovo
3 years in startup land doing venture capital, running accelerators and mentoring
Now I work fully for myself as an entrepreneur doing everything from product building, advisory, and focussing on data and also passions around our single identity and universal basic income models.

I love triathlon, getting to know new and interesting people over coffee or (sometimes!) a cocktail (I'm not a big drinker!). I love to explore off the beaten track and avoid touristy land!

Big into a buddhist philosophy on life focussed on presence and kindness.

Currently mid move between Vienna and Lisbon so I'll be able to host in Lisbon once I've moved.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

People are the very fabric of this world!! I love meeting new interesting and amazing people, each with their own story, and learning from each other!

I used to do this at hostels, but I'm a little older now and the 10 beers and get to know each other is less exciting to me now :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to utilise my NLP qualifications to help and coach others! plus as I've gotten older, added a blend of stoic and buddhist mindset to this. I'm also great at thinking entrepreneurially!
