Partner and Managing Director, Europe
I help clients understand their business’s purpose and future potential, and then match that with our skills. As a partner, I look out for IDEO’s long-term sustainability.
What you won't learn from my bio:
I’m English, but didn’t live in the UK until I was fourteen. I’ve lived in five different countries including Pakistan, France, Belgium, USA and UK.
