Ficshelf - CEO

I believe very strongly that every life is valuable. And as such, we are meant to be doing something that matters. We are meant to give back. Before becoming CEO at FicShelf, a Publishing start-up based in Shoreditch, I found and run a small digital agency that helped more than 100 small businesses to develop their digital strategy through branding development, websites, apps and software. With FicShelf, we are using technology to organise the publishing process and bring it to the digital era, but our main motivation is helping struggling authors, editors and designers to make a living from their craft. I would love to be able to use the skills I have acquired in the past 10 years of my professional and personal life to make our society more compassionate.
