Co Founder (with Donald Douglas) of Ireland's (now) leading mobile marketing agency.

We leveraged some SMS query software from ContactDetails and built a successful mobile agency- offering clients mobile interactivity to their campaigns.

We were unique at the time for our consumer-first approach - we called it Return2Sender not just because we liked Elvis but because we believed everything needed to start with the consumer. Over time that proved to be the right approach.

A combination of factors lead to me passing my shareholding to Donald and moving back to re-join AMV in London. Donald took the company from strength to strength since then and I have always retained my fascination with the mobile space.
