Fractional CTO, making tech investments work

I've worked in many industries from banking and fintech to FMCG and media, and in both developing and developed countries, but always with software. These days I code less and lead more, whether it's leading a dev & support team to build a great service or leading founders to building a great business and team, or leading clients to use the great service. Plenty of successes and scar tissue to share.

I'm currently writing a book on media nutrition and doing fractional work while I get it done.
