TMG Morrison Mortgage Team. I started a career in real estate in London in the new business team at Foxtons, before moving to work for Innocent Drinks as a sales executive. After taking a short career break to travel (where I met my now wife in Vancouver), I transitioned to running digital marketing for a small business, before getting my mortgage broker license in 2020. I’ve been working in the industry ever since and been part of a team that’s funded over 350 mortgages.

In 2020 I founded an ethical consumer lender called Plend, which uses open-data to provide affordable credit to those of us in the UK who have inaccurate or invisible credit histories.
