Hello! I'm Toby


We're all far more than the sum of our parts. To give you an insight into who I am, and more importantly, what I can do for you... I've removed the self congratulatory padding you'll find on most 'about 'ME' web pages. 

Here's some context and a snapshot of where I am today. 

During the last 3.5 years, I've learned more than in the previous 10 years, thanks to... fatherhood, inspiring friends and amazing clients.
