About me: Jamie is a behavioural economist and entrepreneur with four years of experience in financial services and public health. Particularly passionate about tech, he is currently doing an internship at a fintech startup in London.

He decided to do an MBA at LBS because he wants to build an international network and live in an international city while pivoting from a niche role into tech. Jamie was also directly inspired by two South Africans who had done incredibly well after doing their MBAs at LBS. He is also particularly passionate about making a difference in his home continent.

He is currently a member of many clubs including the Tech & Media Club, Africa Club, Consulting Club, Expedition Club, Football Club and Entrepreneurship Club. In the little amount of free time he has, he plays the piano (and has done since he was seven years old)!

Three topics I can be approached about: Africa; studying with partner; tech (non-tech background)
