About me

I spent 5 years at Deliveroo. I helped scale the cloud kitchen business, the People function and worked in Product, where I found my calling.

I left Deliveroo in March 2022. I’m taking a few months off before my next adventure.


I invest in web3 and SaaS companies. If you’re looking to raise, send me a DM on Twitter.
