I create and lead ventures that support entrepreneurship and revitalise cities.

These ventures have been credited with raising £0.5bn+ ($600m) of new investment through public-private partnerships.

They include projects in the U.K., Russia, Eastern Europe and Canada and progressive enterprises such as the Wild Blue Cohort angel investor network and People’s Supermarket, London.

My work has been extensively featured by the international media, including the New York Times, Sunday Times, China Daily and Monocle. It has won several prominent awards, including the public space sister of the Stirling Architectural Prize, and I have featured in the Smith & Williamson Power List (2017) and Centre for Entrepreneurs/Maserati 100 (2016).

My background is in media production. I have produced, directed and executive produced 60hrs+ of specialist factual and documentary television programes for BBC Television, Channel 4, National Geographic and CNN. My most recent programmes were a documentary on Churchill, presented by Andrew Marr, and a series on Napoleon, presented by historian Andrew Roberts.

My passion is entrepreneurship, business, venture investment, urban development and the prosperity of communities.
