For as long as I can remember, I’ve held an unshakeable passion for helping people fulfill their potential

From speaking to young entrepreneurs when I was one myself to leading teams of which I was the youngest, I come alive when I’m helping someone step into what’s possible for them.

Over the past decade, I’ve built a track record of turning ideas into reality

From starting my first company at 19 to building products in London, San Francisco, gaming, digital healthcare and in teams big and small.

I’ve lead teams of which I was the youngest

And built an incredible network of inspiring leaders along the way.

I’ve felt the highs of “success”, the lows of “failure” and everything in between.

I’ve become a practiced expert at rebuilding yourself

Particularly after set backs and life-threatening diagnoses.

In 2016, I found myself facing my mortality after being diagnosed with a life-threatening and ultra-rare blood disease. It’s called PNH, one in 1.3 million people have it and based on the data (99:1 not in my favour), I’m extremely fortunate to be here.

Since my diagnosis, there have been more than a few times in which I believed I was going to die. That that was it, the end.

In those moments, all I could feel was the fear I was going to die having never achieved my potential, weighted with an unbearable sense of regret for having never really tried.

The fear I felt in those moments ignited a fire in me

And surviving them unleashed in me something extraordinary – an unwavering drive to fulfill my potential and an insatiable hunger to help others achieve theirs.

Now, my work as a coach is designed to transform people, acting as a catalyst for extraordinary personal and professional growth.
