Connor Gurney

Welcome to! It is, as you might imagine from the name, the online home of your host, Connor Gurney. I am, in my humble opinion, a terribly unremarkable human living in the UK.

I'm the founder & CEO of Gurste where we're developing a web and mobile app to help organisations to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies. It's come off the back of my volunteering in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire where I managed the technical side to the first website for survivors.

While I seem to have less and less free time these days, I spend what free time I do have trying to keep BlackBerry® smartphones afloat (remember those?!), cycling along the UK's coastline or cooking a butter chicken for my Mrs, Meg.
