I've always been drawn to the start-up world.

I find the combination of analytical rigour with the challenges of helping fast-growth companies achieve their potential incredibly rewarding. Plus, seeing all the new ideas and technologies is just so cool.

Running a marathon: my most boring achievement.

Don’t get me wrong, finishing it was huge. But (runners look away now) I just find long-distance running so boring – Marathon du Médoc has the right idea!

I love the outdoors

Whenever I’m not working, I’m (hopefully) exploring, hiking, kayaking,– or heading back to the ski slopes.
