I’m a futurist in a role that cultivates my passion for emerging technology. Actively investigating blockchain, smart contracts, cognitive computing, semantic web, IoT and other disruptive technologies. I discuss these trends, their impact on the financial services up to a 5 year horizon, and how Thomson Reuters is responding. I’m also active in the local FinTech space, working with Stone & Chalk to bring content and distribution channels to innovators. My background includes 15+ years in emerging technology, product development & architecture – creating some of the first internet and mobile banking platforms in the UK and uplifting financial products with SOA, BPM, SaaS, PaaS and Cloud technology.
