About


I became an entrepreneur after setbacks pursuing a career as a racing driver. In 2008 I entered and won a talent search for a Formula One driver, via an Esports competition. It was due to be televised and the winner would race in Formula BMW the following year. But as the competition ended, F1's television rights were sold to a new company that cancelled the TV show. This eliminated funding for the competition overnight and the prize disappeared. Being the time of the financial crisis, there were few other opportunities.

From there I founded the Esports team '3ID Motorsport', winning multiple championships on various racing simulators, culminating in us becoming iRacing Grand Prix Series World Champions in 2011. In 2013 I left the team which re-branded as 'Coanda Simsport' and remains one of the dominant sim racing outfits to this day.

Towards the end of my time in sim racing, disillusioned with motorsport as a whole, I started pursuing my passion for technology as an entrepreneur, founding iGP Games and developing the game iGP Manager. First available in 2011 as a browser game, iGP Manager launched in to the app stores in 2017, growing rapidly ever since and becoming an industry leader in its category.
