My goal is to change lives. Change lives through directly disturbing archaic, consumer-facing practices and help fellow founders, startups and charities – change lives through powerful practices of mission, value proposition, technology and high-performance organisational culture. My purpose is to leave a legacy that changed lives – through high performance and supporting others in reaching peak performance.

How I see it:

High performance means succeeding beyond standard norms over the long term – whilst maintaining wellbeing and relationships. High performers pull UP their tribe, not push them down. Understanding that high performance is not correlated with age, nationality, ethnicity or gender.


Founder & ex-CEO


An evolutionary proposition; a hybrid estate agency, but with a disruptive price. Founded in late 2016 with a national footprint and target of online/hybrid estate market leader within 3 years. Sold over £1bn of homes and grown to a team of 60+ people before stepping down in April 2021 to pursue other ventures.
