As a Principal at Seedcamp, I spend most of my time sourcing, evaluating and supporting the best early-stage companies in Europe.

I’ve always been fascinated by the power of technology and its role in making people’s lives easier, particularly in areas where access to resources and opportunities are limited. It’s a real privilege to work every day with extraordinary people from all walks of life who are involved in the building of products which are tangibly changing the world for the better.

Prior to joining Seedcamp as an intern, I graduated with a civil engineering degree from the University of Cape Town before completing an MSc at Imperial College London. My first real taste of the tech world came during an internship at Google before two friends and I co-founded a startup tackling the inefficiencies around online clothing returns processes - giving me a practical glimpse into the rollercoaster ride that is startup life.

On a personal level, I was born in France but predominantly grew up in South Africa and Venezuela before moving to the UK. Outside of work, few things bring me more joy than playing football, travelling to new places, or surfing with friends when not stuck in London’s rain!
