I am a Lead Product Manager with over years of experience and a Certified Scrum Product Owner. I hold a degree in Computing and Management BSc from Loughborough University. Currently, I am employed by Acorn-i as a Technical Product Lead. I work closely with the Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founders on our technology strategy. Acorn-i is a specialist in generating sales on Amazon and ensuring brands are setup for e-commerce success. Previously, I have been employed as a Senior Product Manager at The Exchange Lab, a WPP company. WPP acquired The Exchange Lab for Proteus, our proprietary Programmatic Advertising technology. I’ve also been a Product Manager at Ask.com.
Outside of work, I’m a hobbyist programmer. I’ve worked on a number of things beyond this website that interest me and develop skills learned whilst studying Computing and Management BSc (Hons) DPS degree at Loughborough University.
I love podcasts, they’re a fantastic way to distribute content to like minded listen in your own time. For me as a dyslexic, podcasts are a brilliant way to soak up information. I listen to a number of current affairs, industry specific and comedy podcasts. One of which I’ve listened to for over ten years.
To keep and curate these podcasts I have written a program to download new episodes and reformatting the ID3 tags to suit my needs. You may be wondering what is the point. Partly is because I can, but by doing so I have been able to create a catalog of shows with interviews, comedy, and debates far in excess of anything a smartphone can store which I can relisten to episodes as you might reread well-loved books.
