I am a local business leader. After serving as a Royal Marines Commando, I created successful financial services and property businesses and over time moved into the technology sector and product management. In 2018 two seemingly unconnected events changed my life: a knock at the hotel door while in the bath! and my father’s growing loneliness. They sparked an idea that has grown into “Sentai” – a transformational in-home digital care companion. I am passionate about giving children the best possible start in life, which has led me to work with and support various children’s charities. I am delighted to have joined the SMASH team.
