Investment team

"The opportunity to explore a business with the management team that drive it is a genuine privilege."

I joined Gresham House in November 2018 having previously been at Livingbridge.

When a business is in an exciting phase of development, it’s a joy to be involved. 

I studied Politics & Psychology at Cambridge, specialising in behavioural economics. From there, a passion for innovative businesses led me to joining Propercorn, a newly minted FMCG start up. After a year spent developing the commercial side of the business, focusing on establishing new distribution channels, I decided to head to Imperial College Business School for a Masters in Management and then worked briefly at Puma Investments.

Outside of work I am an avid sports fan and am honing my skills in the kitchen. I used to fancy myself as a rugby player; my fondest memory is running out at Twickenham for Cambridge in the Varsity match. However, injury forced me into an early retirement, so I’ve had to content myself with gentler pursuits like swimming, skiing and boxing.
