Why hello there

I am a dynamic, enthusiastic and collaborative Digital Transformation Strategist with 30 years experience in global fashion brands.

As “The Right Brain of IT,” I make decisions that change the face of IT with improved business connectivity through digital innovation that differentiates brands driving momentum and growth.

Projects I’m proud of

From Concept to Consumer.

I’ve been called “the polymath” because I understand the various technologies used to design, develop and manufacture product as well as sell at retail (online and in store) including customer engagement, services and relationship management. I get the process and under how to best leverage the technology.

Here are a few case studies of my work.


The Clienteling Product for Jaeger was implemented as an entirely new CRM system, demonstrating that Proximity Insight delivers all the might of its Salesforce base while being tailored to suit a true retail use case. Core requirements satisfied include being able to link in with all external systems, including POS, Ecommerce, and BI tools; while delivering the look and feel that is imperative for a customer facing retail tool.


MatchesFashion.com is a model for modern retail operations with 25 years experience in luxury fashion, shipping to over 170 countries, and providing 24/7 advice through their dedicated fashion-concierge team, MyStylist. The experience extends online, in London stores, and at No.23, their private-shopping townhouse. They carry an edit of over 400 established and emerging designers from Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Chloé and Isabel Marant to Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Stella McCartney and Max Mara. Now they have rolled out with Proximity Insight across all locations.


Burberry Product Innovation – introduced bleeding edge textile, colour, PLM and 3D technologies to maintain highest design intent to production.


Burberry Runway Made to Order – Provided immediate customer order following runway shows on SAP and Google platforms.


Burberry Events – Introduced interactive, 3D, and hologram technologies that established brand’s image as a digital leader.


Burberry Art of the Trench – A collaborative social media platform allowing customer brand interaction originally launched on Amazon cloud.

Let’s get started

  • 1. Meet

    If you’ve gotten this far and you like what you’ve seen, then we should meet. Technology will never replace human interaction; it only facilitates it! Let’s discuss how I can get you to think creatively about technology and your brand.

  • 2. Dream

    After our initial meeting, let’s plan a session or two where we can dream together. Let’s explore where you are, where you want to go, and how to get there digitally.

  • 3. Do

    You gotta have a plan! You may change that plan, but you gotta have a plan. Where will your journey begin and how will it evolve? It’s always fun to get something done!
