Founded Combo, experienced early stage employee

I am an experienced technical founder, manager, and software engineer that loves to solve challenging problems in creative ways. My last business was a web-based video editor that helped content creators quickly repurpose content for short-form video platforms.

I live in London and enjoy doing pottery in my spare time!

Currently working in the AI space, helping build AI-powered creative tools for kids. I'm open to fractional roles in most spaces where lots of building needs to be done.
