Giving business owners the ability to
make a great first impression
Unlike any other digital strategist that wants to work with you, I've been in your shoes: Over the last 5 years, I've founded 3 tech businesses, have raised over €7m in pre-seed & seed capital, and I've created more PowerPoint presentations than I've had hot dinners.
Like most founders, I've been a jack-of-all-trades and sometimes found it hard to see the wood from the trees. But on reflection, every time we got funding over the line, won a client deal, or struck a new strategic partnership, it was because our first impressions were solid. Our branding talked the talk, which gave us the opportunity to walk the walk.
So I became obsessed with understanding how cogitated branding can connect business objectives to the elusive consumer mindset. I completed a Masters of Science in E-Commerce at DCU to hone my self-taught marketing skills and continued to learn best-in-class practices as a client of leading digital agencies in LA, NYC and London.
Combining my whirlwind entrepreneurial experiences, academic background and keen sensibility to design, I am uniquely adept at helping businesses make the most out of their first impressions.

Founders, are you seeking funding for your business?
300 million startups are founded every year (Entrepreneur.com) yet less than 1% of startups succeed in securing investment capital (Forbes).
From lack of market relevance to team fallout, strong competition or a lack of cash, there are many reasons why 90% of startups fail (Fortune), but poor presentation simply cannot be one of them.
In today's highly competitive startup market, how are you going to stand out and attract the right investment? First thing's first - you need to look like you've already raised millions.
In addition to my 12-week online presence programme, I can provide a deep audit of fundraising materials, make insight-led recommendations & refresh/draft documentation such as one-pagers, proposals, business plans & presentations.
I am for busy business leaders who want to put their best (digital) foot forward
I've worked with SMEs, startups, consultants, influencers, sports organisations & everything in between.
