Strategically, his work is rooted in research, iteration, and open dialogue. He delights in integrating storytelling throughout his work by pioneering imaginative solutions for complex problems and moving ideas from good to great.
When not in front of his speed MAChine, he can be found drinking copious amounts of coffee, watching his beloved Arsenal F.C, or searching out the best chicken rice stall in the city.
