I am a friendly guy with a wide circle of friends. Throw me a great beat and I'll start dancing. Say a cool joke and I'll be laughing. Mention a thought-provoking topic and I'll be there listening - I prefer to understand where people are coming from before giving my own opinion. I'm up for spontaneity in my spare time and creating new opportunities during my work time.
My favourite foods: lasagne (just thinking about it makes me excited), rhubarb crumble (wow, this is actually too painful to write down, especially as right now I am hungry!). I love cities that are close to water. One of my dreams is to live on a yacht one day. Movies: give me thrillers. Books: give me thrillers... and world history. Shows: if its a musical, I'm in. Having performed in FAME The Musical at university several years ago I still have a nagging little desire to be back on stage!
When it comes to my work life, I'm passionate about using product innovation and marketing to make the world a better place. With some friends I'm starting an app called Makerble that helps people create the change they want to see in the world. Our app finds charitable projects that match people's interests and then we show them the effects of the money they donate through our app each month. I'm looking forward to meeting exciting charities, brands and individuals around the world that can help this idea move forward, whilst having loads of fun, parties and safe mayhem in the process!
