Benjamin is a failed musician, artist, and poet who found himself only really good at plugging in computers. After a few years people wanted websites, and later on even a few fairly lame apps.
He moved to London in 2010 and as co-founder of 3-beards - a community focussed events group around entrepreneurial activity. From here he was asked to head up TechCityUK ( then TCIO ) for 12 months. He then experimented with establishing a Free School for Digital Education and the creation of several creative consultancy projects with close allies with clients such as Heineken, BBC Worldwide, Publicis, Aviva, Lloyds, RB, and many more. These experienced formed the backbone for Peace & Love.
As Tech Sector Lead at Expectation State, Benjamin now consults to the Government of the Tunisian Republic, advising them on the digitalisation of Government, and helping them encourage entrepeneurship across the country.
He was born in Preston, grew up in Cambridge, and now lives in London.
He describes himself as “in love with the impossible”.
