Hello. I am the Executive Director of Technology and Digital Transformation at the British Film Institute (BFI).

Previously, I was: Chief Digital Officer at the London Borough of Croydon. Head of GOV.UK, product person and first hire at GDS. Trustee of Drinkaware.

I'm motivated by the power of digital technology, techniques and culture to empower people, transform work and improve quality of life.

You can connect with me on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Medium, Goodreads and Boardgamegeek.

You can read stuff I've written on the web at, the GDS blog and Inside GOV.UK blog; and see some (now quite old!) talks here and here.
