I graduated in Business and International Marketing before spending my formative years working for a technology holding company, expanding their operations into Africa and India. I then worked in engineering and medical industries in the UK and USA before identifying emerging trends in the use of data for decision making. I subsequently joined Ordnance Survey and spent seven years developing my knowledge of data analytics, licensing and services, before joining Liv-ex (The London International Vintners Exchange) in 2013 as Director of Data and Web Services.  From there I joined Mastercard in 2019 and am currently Vice President of Data Strategy.

What I bring to the Governing Body:

I have previously held governor positions at Folly Hill Infant school and William Cobbett Primary school in various roles including safeguarding, vice-chair and chair of the transition board responsible for the merger of William Cobbett Junior and Weybourne Infant schools. I bring an analytical perspective and knowledge of both public and private sector best practice in staff management, strategic planning and operations.
