t all started as a fat baby on the south coast of England, where I was raised by a loving computer and a reliable internet connection. With the help of some friends from school, I learned some basic HTML and started messing around making websites.
I thought it was insanely cool that you could make something and share it with people all over the world. That feeling never went away. It’s pretty special that we’re some of the first humans that have access to the Internet! and can share ideas with almost anybody at the speed of light. It’s wild when you think about it.
I have a very long list of failed projects and subscribe to the philosophy that if you throw enough stuff that you think is cool against the wall… eventually some stuff will stick.
Some highlights include:
- Building and growing a social network to millions of users, raising $7m from some great investors, and ultimately failing.
- Making an iPhone case that I wanted to exist, and turning that company into a 7-figure minimalist lifestyle brand.
- Winning 2 “crunchies” (best social app & best time sink app)
Throwing things against walls eventually brought me to the United States, where I’ve lived for about 10 years now. I’m very happy to be able to say that recently I became a U.S. citizen! 🇺🇸
I’m going to use this website to document my various wall throwing attempts and plan on sharing what I learn along the way. If that sounds interesting consider following along. 🙂
