Dino’s formative years were spent living in various countries in Europe, the Middle East and Latin America due to the fact that his father was first a journalist and then a senior manager with Reuters. After completing undergraduate and postgraduate education in the UK and France, he worked both as a consultant and then for three North American headquartered technology companies. For the last 10 years he has been involved with a number of New Media Software Services startup companies. Today, largely thanks to his work, he gets the opportunity to continue to eat and travel around the world. When at home in London he enjoys cooking and shopping for excellent ingredients. His passion for good food has led to him opening Melograni Alimentari, a deli which brings the best of Italian ingredients together under one roof, and O’Shea’s Butchers, considered to be one of the finest butchers in Europe, as well as taking on a couple of non-executive roles with food related businesses.
