LinkedIn Profile

East London boy through and through, who gave up the world of Private Art Consultancy to work with Wayne, Craig, Alex and the rest of the Orbis team. I come from both a Modern Visual Arts and Blue-Chip investment background, moving into recruitment to pursue a new passion. 

I haven’t looked back and whilst working on the Digital team, I have spent my time building out a strong Front-End Technology franchise, fulfilling the digital needs of multiple firms across the UK and Europe’s financial sector. 

My interests include Contemporary art, more specifically anything circa 1950, that is driven by a Pop/Postmodern influence. I collect art, ranging from Rauschenberg, Johns, Paolozzi to Warhol, Banksy and Harland Miller. 

The first box is for the title ('what they say'), the second box is for the testimonial. You need to select a full block of text as 'block quote' (the symbol with the quotes in the edit menu) to make it an independent testimonial. Bold text is used to write the name of the author of the quote.

Lorenzo played an instrumental role in my move to Deutsche Bank. He was extremely consultative about my future ambitions, and was available to guide me at all times. A diligent and sincere consultant who was a pleasure to work with.
