Chairman and Trustee

Interests

I love technology and gadgets! Whether it’s the latest mobile phone or coolest new web site! I’m big on sports too – I’ll play just about any sport but I’m big on football (“come on you Spurs!”) and cricket (a proud member of England’s fan base – The Barmy Army!). I also enjoy following politics, particularly in the US and studying Hindu philosophy.

Favourite Music

Mainly Soul, R&B, Jazz – artists like Brian McKnight (who is amazing live), Joe, and Michael Buble.

Favourite TV Shows

People say I’m a TV addict but I only watch like 10 shows – I’m a big fan of The West Wing, Friends, and 24.

Favourite Food

Without a shadow of a doubt…Indian – there are so many different flavours and styles of food from around India – love it!

Favourite Books

“The Lonely Planet Guide To…” – I love to travel and the first thing I do after deciding where to go is buy the travel guide – gets me all excited!

Favourite Quote

“A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at them.” – Swami Chinmayananda

Who I Would Most Like To Meet

Mark Zuckerberg

A little bit about my background

I studied Business Management at Aston University in Birmingham graduating in 2005. I then worked in the IT Graduate Scheme at Lloyds Banking Group for a year. In 2006, I setup a Digital Marketing Agency focusing on affiliate marketing for Small & Medium Enterprises. Most recently in 2011, I joined the International Marketing team at Just Eat.

Why One Cause?

I’ve always been involved with various charities and voluntary projects. These range from being a first aider with St. John’s Ambulance at local community events, to volunteering at many large scale charitable events.

So I jumped at the chance to start, grow and shape a charity. Non-profit sector work gives me perspective and ensures that I’m always doing my bit in society. Plus the power of education is undeniable.

Not to mention that this work is so much fun!
