In 2010 I bought a run-down vicarage in Hackney, N1. With almost no property experience, I hired the first builder that came to quote! Now six years later and still living in that gorgeous area of De Beauvoir, I have built up a property portfolio of over 15 projects, with many more completed last year. In November 2016, we raised £1.4m through crowdfunding with Simple Equity for an upcoming project in Dalston. It’s been a complete blast!

But I’m only getting started. This year I have a brand new podcast speaking to brilliant leaders and partners in the industry; we’re doing tours of our developments each month, events and (aaah!) my book…I’ve had a huge amount of help to get to this point and I’m so thrilled to be here doing what I’m really passionate about, and, hopefully, inspiring others to do the same.
