Originally hailing from the UK, I started my career in investment banking at Credit Suisse before combining this with my passion for technology in the developing startup scene in London. I helped leading tech businesses raise growth financing and advised on M&A and IPOs. My focus was on consumer internet and SaaS, including companies such as Just Eat (raised c.£1bn on the LSE) and Fuzebox (raised $100m).
I subsequently made the dive into startup life, joining an AR company to lead partnerships for the world's first visual search platform. This taught me a huge amount about image recognition and AR, as well as the challenges of early stage companies. The company was ranked #9 on CBNC's Disruptor list and raised $100m in financing.
Now based in Sydney, I am hugely excited to be able to be a part of helping to build Australia’s tech ecosystem. I'm amazed at the world-class talent we have here and love meeting founders to hear their story.
