With so many books, articles, and lectures, there is no simple 'one-size-fits-all' biography! So, wherever I am, the organizers pick one of the following...


In education

He's worked with schools, companies, designers, and producers to ensure the best technology solutions are found to provide a true pedagogical solution. In addition to his own CTO duties, he also advises other CEOs and CTOs in matters of strategy and development.

In addition to his work as a mentor at ed-invent, he regularly lectures at universities to encourage students into the industry, explaining the real-life situations they will face, and how to solve them. Currently he has a residency at Bedfordshire University helping students work towards their B.U.G.S. projects.

As a systems architect he's designed and built global systems for Unilever, Playfish, and Know Maths using a wide range of languages and technologies. He's also highly experienced on the small scale, with work on the iPhone, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi, as well as running teams of between 1 and 30 people.
