About Me

I currently work at Studio Graphene where I lead the delivery of all of our mobile projects, covering everything from client and project management to developing iOS applications.

Prior to this I co-founded Reality Games, a new mobile games studio specialising in games based on live, real world data. Reality Games was formed following my sale of the IP of Landlord, a game I conceptualised, built and launched in 2012. We received investment from Oxygen Accelerator in September 2014 and successfully launched Landlord 2: Tycoon Edition in January 2015.

I've built a number of apps as side projects.

I built and then released Sleeps Until, the best countdown app you will ever use, over a weekend.

I also set up Coding For Cancer, a social enterprise creating mobile apps to raise money for charities that fund research into cancer and help the lives of those living with it. The initial app, Three Tiles is available on the App Store and on Google Play.

Before Landlord, I trained as a Chartered Accountant at PricewaterhouseCoopers, in their Business Recovery Practice. Here I spent a large amount of time working on the high profile administration of Lehman Brothers.

I obtained a 2:1 in Economics at Nottingham University.

Following this I studied for a Masters Degree in Corporate Strategy & Governance, also at Nottingham University, and achieved a Pass with Merit. My dissertation was on the low cost airline industry and can be read here.

I went to school at City of London School for Boys.

I have a passion for aviation and hold a Private Pilots License with a Night Rating. I am continuing my training towards a Multi-Engine Rating and Instrument Rating.
