Agile for Agencies


I'm the CEO and Co-founder of Manifesto - an Agile digital agency based in London.

I've previously worked with organisations like Cancer Research UK, Barclays and The Greater London Authority delivering engaging online experiences.

I tend to work bridging the gap between user and business goals, marketing and technology. What some might call a Creative Technologist. I split my time between working with our clients coaching Agile and creating digital strategy and finding interesting projects and clients for Manifesto to work with.
