I was born in Northern Ireland of Indian parents and grew up as one of the only two coloured males in Armagh during the Troubles. The other was my father who arrived in Northern Ireland penniless just before the war.
Initially considered at school an academic failure, I managed to get into Leeds University and then joined the actuarial profession. Being naturally rebellious, I struggled to conform to corporate life and so my career has transitioned from consultant to executive, finally finding my passion as an entrepreneur.
I’ve been fortunate in being able to play a part in building a number of successful businesses, both traditional and digital, and now spend my time supporting others build great businesses I am married to Frances, we have one daughter and enjoy the dynamic, diverse lifestyle of London.
