Design Partner

About

I help founders design and build their ideas.

I run a brand and digital product studio called The Workshop – partnering with visionary leaders and design-led capital on the ideas and products that shape our collective future.

I’m also an investor in early-stage ideas, play the bagpipes with one of the top bands in the world and obsess over high-intensity fitness. I have too many pairs of sneakers, live for good food and life experiences – and the best part is, I'm Dad to one amazing son.

After years of working in New York, London & Toronto, I’m now based with my family in Mallorca.

Investing

I invest my own money into ideas and people that excite me – providing tactical business, product and design feedback, mentorship and strategic introductions. Think of me as a design advisor with skin in the game.

I enjoy supporting early-stage challenges – working on undesigned solutions with founders who are brave enough to go all-in. I find that mindset inspiring. If this is you and want to chat about working together, please reach out!
