Featured Project:

Banksybase

Banksybase is a personal project I started in Lockdown 1. I combined my for love of art and tech by creating an app listing all of the street artists works.

Projects

I run LAUNCHfyi, Banksybase and We Like Oliver.

๐Ÿš€LAUNCHfyi
LAUNCHfyi is my holding company for a number of projects, including a web design company that helps businesses and creatives get their sites live from only ยฃ150.00.

๐Ÿ€Banksybase is a passion project that I started during lockdown. The Banksybase app helps art buyers find historical data on the street artist 'Banksy'.

๐Ÿ”ตWe Like Oliver.
I run Oliver with my Brother and Sister which we created in 2018 to manage digital marketing for musicians and creatives.

I enjoy ๐Ÿƒrunning, ๐ŸŽถmusic, ๐Ÿ“ฑtechnology and a ๐Ÿƒplant based diet.

My biggest goal is to run a sub 20 minute 5k. Currently at 22:35!

I'm really bad at keeping a blog going - if I've written anything recently you'll either find it on Twitter or Medium.
