At school I started writing software on an Apple ][ and experimenting with radio technologies through ‘Ham Radio’ (G6 TUW).
After college in 1993 I joined CTI, which became Orange, the mobile network.
In 1995 I set-up Tableau, a creative agency investing in emerging design & print technologies and started experimenting with Bulletin Boards, HTML and Websites.
In 1996 Tableau was commissioned by a start-up company called easyJet.
Our brief was to initially develop their creative campaigns, but I eventually convinced the Founder, Stelios Haji-Ioannou to develop a website. Our website went live in 1997 and in April 1998 became Europe's first transactional website for an airline.
Following on from our award-winning work for easyJet, we developed website and e-commerce solutions for Tesco's, Dixon Store Group and Virgin.
In 2002 I founded CoverMe which evolved to became paythru the World’s first banking grade, white-label mobile commerce platform.
Under my tenure, paythru raised over £3m in private funding to develop the platform and markets.
Global Clients included Jamie Oliver, Parkeon and Oltio PayD, a venture with Standard Bank and MTN.
Since paythru I have been focused on developing new ideas through operando.
Trident Cloud is my latest incarnation.
