I joined Chris Smith at Close Communications after working with him for a few years as a freelancer. We started off with an order-ahead matchday app for Cardiff Blues Rugby Club.
Shortly after I was promoted to Creative Director and we reinvented ourselves as CloseComms, and made an order-ahead app called Q-Jumper for the Grand National at Aintree and for The Republic of Extra Cold festival in South Africa with Castle Lager. But soon the focus turned to app engagement, and we pivoted into the QSR app, trials with major QSRs followed including McDonalds in South Africa, Burger King in New York and Subway in California, the subsequent contract with Subway came after many years of hard work.

We then rebranded the QSR app to 21:32 – the result of a fantastic 12-week MVP programme with Future Kings that I participated in with our CEO and COO. Post Covid we are resuming trials with Nathan’s Famous in Coney Island, and we’re also creating some exciting new applications in the Nano Battery and EV space with mPhase in California.
