Born and educated in New Zealand before moving to the UK, he did short service with the British Army, training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

Since then he has delivered growth programs for a variety of businesses at C-Level across varied sectors including IBM, BDO, private equity firms Maven Capital Partners, 24 Haymarket and UK government British Business Bank and Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.
His specialty is understanding how technology can deliver efficiencies and growth in business.

Much of his youth was spent living in the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa where exposure to low resource settings and austere living conditions left a lasting impression. It is this experience that drives his desire to help develop solutions for the GSTC and make a difference to as many lives as possible.
