Past

I’ve been messing around on the internet since I was 12. I quickly became addicted and started working on lots of different internet themed projects. Those projects take lots of different forms. There have been websites, games, apps and physical products to name a few.  

This picture is from around 2007 from inside my office/cupboard in Poole, UK.

In 2009 one of the little projects I was working on started to become quite popular. It was called DailyBooth. It was a social network based around selfies (before they were called “selfies”!).

We raised $7m from some great investors, grew it to a few million users, won 2 crunches, and eventually sold it to Airbnb. It was a blast. 

Now

I’m co-founder of a company called Need/Want. It’s the company I’ve always wanted to start. The model of Need/Want mirrors what I’ve been doing my whole career. We try lots of different ideas, see what works and what doesn’t, run with some and kill others. We’re always working on something new and I couldn’t be having more fun doing it. 

So far we've launched 6 companies under Need/Want. They're all very different. You can poke around this website and find out more info on any of them if you're interested. 

Other Stuff

Since December 2014 I've been making a gif of whatever I've been doing at 8:36pm. You can see those gifs here.
