«What do you do?»

I apply multidisciplinary intents to product and process, wherever opportunity or introspection strikes. I mainly work with online projects, yet have experience extending from conceptualisation through to marketing, on varied projects as diverse as interior design and web-service APIs.

On the tech front I offer software/application architecture consulting and independent development team execution (resourcing, training, management, support), plus discrete facets such as UX, API specifications and optimisations (yep, I like blazing fast pages).

I've also been active in the development of hospitality spaces that foster communities, ideas and their associated lifestyles — particularly coliving hubs and mixed-use models that support entrepreneurship.

Sectors that I am focussed upon are: e-Commerce / Marketplaces; Publishing / Identity; Decoration / Interiors / Fashion; Hospitality / Intentional Communities / Real Estate; Distributed Computing / SaaS.

Active projects

Pitch me! I'm currently available for ad-hoc or nominally retained consulting and advisory, fractional/part-time roles, and full-time given the right conditions. More than happy to have an initial chat (book a video call or ping me), and if there's alignment I'm open to being very flexible in order to take things forward with a basis to build a longer-term engagement.
