I'm passionate about operating growing companies, the 'professionalisation' of start-ups, and encouraging real conversations what's really going on in our companies. 

I'm a new San Franciscan, long-time ATLien, medium-term Bostonian, and on-and-off New Yorker. You can generally find me tackling my restaurant list, teaching Pilates, and learning the complex recycliing rules on the West coast. 

Ongoing projects

  • Consulting in the Digital practice @ Bain & Company: Supporting clients from strategy to implementation

  • Supporting entrepreneurs: Drop-in support for operations, strategy, business and financial planning for start-ups and growing businesses (interested in learning more? Reach out!)

  • Story-catching @ The Human Side of ScaleWorking with Jess Goldfin to shine a light on the reality of what actually happens when a startup scales — beyond the metrics to the real experiences. We think people working in the startup community deserve better language and better tools to navigate growth, and are learning from their stories.
