Hello, my name is Junaid and I’d like to think that the travel industry runs in part through my blood. As a teenager, I’d spend the summers being errand boy for my Dad who ran his own travel agency. Times have certainly changed since the late nineties but the travel experience is still important.
Since those days I’ve worked in the oil and gas sector for Royal Dutch Shell for 10 years within the Drilling industry. My highlight was working offshore as a lead supervisor on projects worth circa €500k a day. An amazing experience that will live with me in all my future jobs.
For the past year I’ve explored an investment fund as well as various startup projects before deciding TakeMeAway was the right project for me to focus my energy on.
I hold a Masters in Engineering from Cambridge University.
I’m Tom and I’ve been working with technology for more than 20 years now. I’ve worked in many industries over that time, including fashion, computer games, television broadcasting and the automotive industry.
For the past couple of years I've been working on a variety of different projects exploring all realms of technology hardware and software.
