Jonathan ran his first few lines of valuable code in 1996 after years of tinkering with computers and electronics. He has since written commercial software on four continents and spoken about creating great environments for building products around the world.
Jonathan is the founder of The Skiff, a 150 member coworking community in Brighton, England. He's witnessed what it takes for software businesses to reach >£80K monthly recurring revenue, acquire >1 million users and raise >$1 million. He's learned most while working to resolve challenging situations you'll hopefully never experience with dissatisfied users, dysfunctional teams, dangerous software, damaged data, dwindling finances and disastrous exits.
After 5 years of building businesses to serve product development organisations, Jonathan made his first product-based income while he slept in 2011. He continues to enjoy working closely with businesses in industries as diverse as education, marketing and music.
Jonathan's driven by his desire is to create healthy communities that apply sensible practices to build great products. Offline he loves to spend time sailing across oceans and cooking up memorable meals for friends and family with his wife, Anna.
Jonathan really came through for us in his personal evaluation of prospective technologists interviewing for the CTO position at QikCut. I would enthusiastically recommend Jonathan as a key ally in supporting entrepreneurs to make informed and strategic hiring decisions.Michael Propper Founder, QikCut
We've been in the software as a service business for over 10 years and Jonathan introduced us to a wealth of valuable opportunities we hadn't previously spotted. It was refreshing to get perspective from someone who genuinely understands how things work at the intersection of business and technologyRebecca Kimber Cofounder, Create.net
