As Founder and CEO of PebblePad I steer the direction of travel for the ongoing development of PebblePad as a product, a service and a business.

I see myself as protector and prodder of our wonderful team, champion and chief critic of our product, reader and writer of recurring reports, partner and provocateur to our amazing community, world-wide wanderer and educational wonderer – always trying to live up to my accorded title, Chief Mischief Maker.

I’ve been thinking about, talking about and sharing ideas and inspiring examples of portfolio practice for nearly two decades. Before my career in portfolios I had a portfolio career as a principle lecturer in education, a firefighter, a sailing coach and a builder of traditional dry stone walls
