My Trajectory

I am all about rolling up my sleeves and tackling the challenges. Being Cambridge Quantum’s General Counsel means staying energetic, vigilant and keeping pace, as well as minding the interests of the company, our mission, our assets, my colleagues and the quality of our work product.

Day in and day out I aim to elevate visibility in quantum by supporting my colleagues in their work. Our scientists are creating foundational tools which will accelerate scientific discovery in the field of quantum computing that will ultimately deliver positive and permanent impact for humanity and the environment.

Our global ambitions, sense of mission and the no fear approach taken across the firm, particularly in scientific discovery, are what really drive me as General Counsel and frames the way we go about our work at Cambridge Quantum.

Everything begins with education – from developing and growing the critical talent pool to the quantum preparedness programs that are shifting corporate attitudes, policies and budgets positively toward quantum.

Quantum cybersecurity, quantum finance, and quantum augmented gaming, are segments that hold great promise. In terms of collaborators, we’re always on the lookout for intelligent and innovative partners led by good people with common values and strategic ambition.
