I’m a co-founder and partner at enso, where we help companies design the future.
Originally from southern England, I’m now enjoying more light in southern California, with the wonderful @KerryKB.
I’ve lived in the logic world (economics, law, corporate finance, business strategy) and the cultural world (literature, history, travel, photography, street art). That fused into being a strategist, focused on creating new initiatives that add value to the world. I’m a Gates Foundation Goalkeeper and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
I’m an optimist. My greatest joy is exploring life and new possibilities, whether that’s a new kind of business, a new way of being, or a new shared mission. I’m optimistic about you.
