Founder and CEO
Richard is one of the leading figures on London's tech scene, with an excellent track record in business and a reputation for smart creative thinking.
His name has appeared on a variety of "influential people" lists in recent years, among them The Daily Telegraph's '100 Most Influential People in Technology' list (2008), Digital Media's 'Top 10 most influential people' list in 2009, and Wired Magazine's 'Wired 100' in 2010.
Prior to founding MOO, he worked for design company Imagination as a strategist, for dotcom startup sorted.com, and for the BBC. He has developed a keen eye for what he calls "remarkable consumer products" - things that people actually love to own. That's what's at the core of MOO itself.
Outside MOO, Richard is a board member at investment fund Seedcamp, a founding member of the Awesome Foundation's London Chapter, and a member of the Young Presidents Organisation and the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.
Richard admits to having made "every mistake in the book" during MOO's early years. He seems to have got the hang of it now, though.
