Originally a physicist, computer vision researcher and ballroom dancer at Oxford University, Peter followed in the footsteps of many entrepreneurs and left his PhD in computer vision to seek his fortune starting a company in San Francisco. 18 months later his company clickpass.com had been acquired and two years later Peter pried himself away from the sunshine and skiing of California to return to his homeland and to Shoreditch, London.
