About Me

I regularly attend PM conferences & meet-ups (Elevate, Product School). I keep up to speed with PM best-practice through online learning and blogs/newsletters.

I've always got a personal development project on the go; currently, I'm building a fantasy football team-building AI and the tool that made this CV. I regularly attend developer meet-ups (React London, GitHub Universe, Next Conf).

I love board games, quizzes, cryptic crosswords, and cats. I'm a runner (first marathon will be in Valencia in December), cyclist, rock climber, and dancer (1st place university circuit). I sing and am a multi-instrumentalist.
