Next month, I'm joining GMB Fitness to help them with product stuff.
I'm currently wrapping up being COO for DIGIT. DIGIT is Ireland’s largest games developer and the creator of free-to-play, mobile, strategy MMO games. We're currently developing our second title, based on a phenomenal IP. I oversee production and HR. Most of my time has been spent working with the leadership team to re-organise production, to help the studio plan and execute better. I've also been building an HR function.
Before that I co-founded Rescover. Rescover lets you easily discover things you love (TV shows, movies, games & music) and reminds you when, and where they come out. We built and launched Rescover on iOS, Apple Watch, Android and the web in a short period of time, with minimal self-funding.
We saw good levels of engagement and were featured in ‘best new apps’ by Apple. I was involved in all areas of building and launching Rescover – product roadmap, feature design / testing, analytics, content, marketing, user acquisition etc.

Before that I was General Manager of Moshi Monsters for Mind Candy . Moshi Monsters is an online game for kids, with over 80 million sign-ups. It stretches across the world of music, mobile, video, toys, film, cartoons, books and much more. I led the stabilisation of subscribers and significantly grew profitability of the studio.
Before that, I was Chief Operating Officer and VP of RuneScape for Jagex (UK’s largest independent games developer and publisher). Whilst I was at Jagex, I was instrumental in growing RuneScape into the world’s largest free-to-play MMORPG and helping to build Jagex into a 500 person company.
I also led the reversal of a 3 year decline in RuneScape subscribers and significantly grew the profitability of the studio by introducing micro-transactions.
I co-founded AtLarge Nutrition, a sports supplement, ecommerce company in 2008. We developed a 10+ product line, won several awards and built a profitable company. In 2010, I sold my stake and stepped away from the business to return to Jagex. My co-founder still runs the business profitably today.
