I'm a fresh thinking business-minded design professional with a passion for pioneering technology that makes a difference. Recent entrepreneurial adventures and a desire to disrupt traditional design industry models have landed me in the tech scene as a Founder for buildabrand - a venture capital backed start-up. Taking the idea from concept to reality, working with a talented team I pioneered and developed a unique UI, UX, product and platform, delivering instant and complete brand identities from a single name. Before my tech calling, I worked with a host of brands internationally and regionally at the Scandinavian Design Group and McCann Worldgroup, creating award winning brand designs and campaigns, and leading creative and cross functional teams across Europe and in the Nordic region. In parallel to professional actives I have continually enjoyed mentoring, nurturing creative talent, contributing at speaking events and supporting others in realising their ideas.

Have been meaning to attend the OpenCoffee Meetup for months, have heard good things from many people, including... Håkon Haugnes & Geir Rasmussen from the Global Name Registry, Nic Brisbourne at DFJ Esprit, Robert Loch from Internet People and a few others. I got to the event quite late, but still managed to meet a great bunch of young and experienced entrepreneurs at various stages in their tech startups or ventures. Two notable individuals were Matt brooke-Smith who is developing a range of very innovative iPhone apps and Nick Donnelly at Netshops. Will definitely be attending the next OpenCoffee Meetup and arriving a lot earlier!
