I founded new a startup, Village Raised, to allows schools to fundraise online using a crowdfunding model - and have built and launched the MVP myself. It's currently in operation gaining first sign ups and pledges.
I'm an ideas person, a marketing and communications strategist, with domain knowledge in several verticals (including Education), and 13 years professional experience.
I have been involved in a couple early stage startups, completed a startup incubator program (MEGA) and graduated the Founder Institute accelerator program with Village Raised. I am a follower of Lean principals.
Right now I am focused on helping parents, teachers & schools collaboratively fundraise for the benefit of kids well-being & education.
I also have interest and experience in the Creative Industries - filmmaking, games, publishing, transmedia, media art etc and would like to build gamification into my crowdfunding platform in the future.
Always interested in people and solving their problems, have applied my marketing experience to many different industries including advertising, education, business management, psychology, fast-moving-consumer-goods, and entertainment.
