The journey begins at the turn of the millennium. I taught myself to design and develop websites – aged 14. Once I realised I could earn money from it, I started Warehouse Media. We won a few awards. In 2007 I co-founded the tech start up Reserve – an online booking and holiday let management platform. Within two years we were processing millions of pounds of bookings per annum.
Flash forward five years to 2012. Spurred by the Games Makers that contributed to the London Olympics, I wanted to devote time to volunteering – and started working with children. I was struck by the rich mix of personalities. How children could be so different outside school. It unlocked an urgent hunger to learn about child psychology.
Today I have keen understanding of neurodivergence in children. The stress response. The Discover-Defend axis. I am also the proud foster parent of three amazing kids. My ambition is to connect with others to improve children’s lives through digital projects. And I have a unique skillset to make it happen.
Creativity means different things to different people. For me it’s about having the curiosity to see a problem without expectations. Without pre-judging the best route to the desired result. Forging the path is a journey I take with a vast digital toolkit. And a close network of specialist consultants. For all kinds of projects, for all kinds of clients.
