CO-FOUNDER & CEO
Hear it from the team
I work with our directors, strategists and clients to ensure Black Swan produces world-class data science and technology driven products and services. I call myself a ‘delivery mechanic’. With a single touch point for a project manager, I am involved in scoping (developing new briefs and aligning existing offerings to client needs), execution (operational management of resources and budget), and delivery (ensure in-scope quality output post-delivery opportunities).
SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER
I work with a cross-functional team of consultants, data scientists, engineers, customer success managers, and sales development representatives to curate taxonomies forming our robust datasets. The category-based datasets are the backbone of our trend prediction platform. I enjoy engaging with the diverse, intelligent team, utilizing our bespoke proprietary tools and continuously scaling up our processes. As a result, there’s always something new to learn across Black Swan.
Senior Insights Consultant
I head up our global Data Science team. My primary job is to ensure all the data scientists at Black Swan are happy and empowered to do their best work. I also provide thought leadership and guidance around our various products and R&D streams. I love working at Black Swan because every day we face new and fascinating problems, often in novel areas which have no solution in the literature. Altogether it makes for a thoroughly inspiring and thought-provoking environment.
Data Science Director
As a member of the Engineering team, I’m helping our Datasets and Insights team – supporting our Python and Spark tools and helping in the automation of our existing processes. It’s a very exciting and challenging job because of the wide variety of tasks. I have a lot of insight into many technological solutions and I’m able to meet many great people every day.
Data Support Engineer
I’m a solutions strategist at Black Swan, partnering with our growth leads to define and deliver great consumer foresight programs. My background is in traditional market research, and I started my Black Swan journey in our Insights Delivery team. I was really excited to work for a company at the forefront of the industry, and to apply our predictive data to help find solutions for clients. My time in Insights has given me an invaluable perspective on how our propositions come to life. Making an internal move has left me with a renewed appreciation for all our brilliant people and the culture of collaboration at Black Swan.
As a member of the Marketing team, I am responsible for driving awareness and demand for Black Swan Data's solutions. It's great to get the autonomy and creative freedom to truly experiment and push the brand forward. My team is incredibly passionate, engaged, and knowledgeable, so it's a pleasure to come to work every day.

Learning is at the heart of Black Swan Data – it’s how we continue to thrive. That’s why we’re always evolving the investment we make in the development of our Swans.
We adopt the 70:20:10 learning and development concept:
comes through experience – rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck in from day one.
comes from learning with and from feedback, through mentors, peers, colleagues, and friends.
comes through engaging in the right training at the right time – e.g. online courses, conferences, and workshops.
Our teams work across the globe from North America to the UK, Hungary, and South Africa.
