In Summer 2020 his company Reincubate released a revolutionary new app called Camo – which turns your iPhone into a state-of-the-art webcam.

He started his professional journey as a software engineer and over the last 20 years has co-founded multiple startups and played an influential role in a number of successful companies.

He’s been UK president of the Entrepreneur’s Organization – helping businesses and startups develop and in 2008 he founded his app data company Reincubate building technology to access data from apps and app platforms.

According to The Wall Street Journal, laptop cameras in 2020 are worse than 2010 models. Camo solves this problem, and then some – by enabling you to use your powerful iPhone or iPad camera as a hugely customisable webcam.
