Born and bred in Essex of England, I was educated in London. I moved to the San Francisco a few years ago. A keen traveller of the world, my journeys have covered much of Europe, Asia, and South America. I also lived and worked in Australia for a year when I graduated from university. I love meeting new people from various parts of the world, curious about different cultures and learning about people's stories. Being British also means I love football (or soccer to Americans). Sadly, I don't get to watch it as much as I would love to these days. One of the things about being English is getting used to bland food, so I love trying out new foreign delights. Point me to something new and I'll probably taste it! I worked at (website hidden) and since leaving consulted startups such as Bebo, Xoopit, Apture, Rdio, Causes and Scribd. I build Airbnb now.
