Tell everyone a little about yourself.

I successfully built a Sports Photography business over a period of 20 years - which was sold in 2004. 3i were investors. For the last 5 years I have enjoyed being "funemployed". Winner of CBI/Real Business Award 2003 -Technology in Business.

Are you currently running a tech company or looking to form one? Tell us about that!

Not currently - but interested in finding opportunities where I can get involved as a mentor, NED, Biz Dev person and/or investor.

Which tech companies have you been involved with in the past?

Used first Kodak prototype professional digital camera at Lillehammer Olympics in 1994, Hosted Web base photo system for Sun Microsystems at Atlanta Olympics in 1996, Worked with Toshiba to install WiFi networks at Football League grounds in 2002. My company, EMPICS, was Winner of CBI/Real Business Award 2003 -Technology in Business. Current investor in 2DegreesNetwork and about to invest in SF startup, Everpix
