About me

I am...


CPTO / CTO / CPO

Startup Founder

Non-exec Board Director

Startup Advisor

I'm a technical generalist with a strong commercial sense, working across Dev, Product, UI/UX & Presales, able to build and manage teams but also get hands-on. I co-founded Masabi, an Accel KKR-funded 185 person 1$bn run-rate B2B SaaS platform where I was CTO and then CPO, .

What I'm working on

JumpStart.Tech

I founded Jumpstart.tech to help startups needing help setting a solid technical direction. Tailored advice (what to build, how to build it, who with), bootstrapping/prototyping, mentoring, solving hard problems - whatever you need, either as consultancy or embedded in the team!

Looking for

Startups wanting technical help

SaaS MVP in Bubble

Working with a seed funded startup of Research and ML specialists to turn their consultancy-oriented process into a SaaS product. In-depth product discovery sessions led to a Figma design and an MVP build on the Bubble.io No Code platform, which they can rapidly iterate on to hone with customers.

Looking for

anyone wanting MVP / prototype support

Team CanDo - CTO

Two days a week I am working as CTO at Team CanDo, Tide founder George Bevis's startup incubator, providing technical guidance for a range of interesting projects aiming to make the world a better place.

Looking for

interested in part time CTO/CPO support?

Mentoring with Black Valley

I've been really enjoying mentoring with Black Valley, an organisation dedicated to supporting the world's best Black talent and startups. I've worked with several incredible Startup Founders to help get their ideas off the ground, and mentored several Developers starting out on their careers.

Experience & achievements

Co-founder of Masabi Ltd

Founded Masabi and grew it into a multi-award winning 185 person transit fare collection B2B2C SaaS pioneer with 100+ customers in 10 countries, a billion dollar run rate and funding from Accel KKR and Mastercard. Acted as CTO and then CPO. Crosslake rated the tech platform very highly in tech DD.

NED at Pinga

I supported rapid delivery company Pinga as a Non-Executive Director, from shortly after conception through to exit.

Masabi Analytics

Built out a fully functioning realtime data analytics tool in D3.js as a side project, to plug a competitive gap at Masabi that became apparent doing Presales. It became a key part of the Justride software suite for several years until the functionality was subsumed into the main platform.

Photography

When I'm not working I like to shoot photos - mainly long exposure/low light, astro and travel photos. I used to do a lot of club photography and occasionally shoot weddings and events.
I shoot with a Canon R5 (the eye detection and manual focus hints are game changing!) and a DJI Mavic Pro 2.
