About you

Co-Founder of Project Dirt.

Previously a Chartered Surveyor who advised pension funds on buying shops and shopping centres as investments.

Having qualified as a surveyor, i set up on my own – to free up some time to start up Project Dirt.

Met Nick (through Alex Thom . also a PD member) and we set about starting up Project Dirt.

Our mission has always been to create the most USEFUL social network possible for communities. One that connects people and projects, lets people share good practice, get involved in real life social and environmental activity – and a platform which helps resource those activities.

From 1 project (Balham Composters) and 5 people, we’re now moved onto our new site with over 9,000 members.

Where next – to expand across the UK. Create numerous Town/City clusters . and enable companies (nice ones) and organisations support the community.

In a nut shell, we set up Project Dirt to help mobilise the UK’s doers and shakers!
