Who I am

My passions are problem solving, technology, hands-on work and company building. This is what lead me after two years of investment banking at Credit Suisse and Charterhouse in London to join the internet startup Ciao (sold to Microsoft for $486m) as CFO in 2000. Following this, I went on acquire and co-found the luxury goods brands Prantl (sold to PE Investor in 2018) and Pemberly Fox. My 18 years of finance and operational experience in startups and turnarounds involved developing retail, wholesale and digital sales channels, optimizing production and work processes (kanban + agile project delivery) as well as raising capital, managing investors, finance, legal and HR.



What's Next

in 2017 I drank the coolade and became immersed in blockchain technology and its vast transformational possibilities and use cases. In early 2018 I stepped back from my operational role at my company and completed the Oxford Blockchain Strategy Programme at Saïd Business School. After exiting my company through a sale to a PE investor in 2018 my full focus within the blockchain ecosystem now lies in the following areas:

Scalable Base Layer Protocols
2nd Layer Solutions
Third Generation Blockchains & Interoperability
Digital Assets
Asset Tokenisation
Security Token Primary Issuance & Secondary Trading
Tokenomics & Classification of Cryptoassets
Regulation + Compliance + Crypto Custody
