About me

I'm looking to leverage my digital skills to the advantage of charity in a trustee-level role.

I'm a director in a digital agency business, where I've led the technical and operational strategy for the last 10 years. In my career prior I've been building software and optimising processes for a wide variety of organisations.

In my professional life, I have worked with a lot of charitable organisations - the C&A Foundation, Dogs Trust, The Brain Tumour Charity (and Headsmart), The Make-A-Wish Foundation, SRUK, Makaton and others to deliver digital transformation, websites, and donation platforms. 

I'd like to bring my knowledge and connections to a more long-term engagement, by becoming a trustee of a charity in need of a digital turn-around. 

What am I looking for

I'm looking for a trustee position in a charity which has a mission I can believe in.

Due to my professional life, I've an interest in STEM and promoting digital literacy and skills, but I have a wide range of interests and I'm looking forward to considering all possible opportunities. I'm particularly passionate about issues around homelessness and addiction/substance misuse.
