Say hi to the Flownies – a deep-working, curious bunch on a mission to help you be more productive and inspired

Alicia Navarro
Founder and CEO
Alicia is the founder and leader at FLOWN. She led her previous company Skimlinks for 11 years – it was pretty successful, and was acquired during the Covid lockdown. Her background is in computer science, and she’s now a serial entrepreneur. During and after her time at Skimlinks, Alicia became fascinated by the physical and mental conditions necessary to achieve our human potential, which is how the idea for FLOWN came about.

Cat Navarro
Cat’s background is in leading large-scale transformations for government and business. She moved to the UK from Australia eight years ago, and started leading ops and people functions, helping early-stage businesses scale. Cat’s also a pro-level chef, and is FLOWN’s main supplier of food envy-inducing Slack photos.
Likes: Travelling, wine, hiking, cooking
Andy Penfold
Content director
Andy’s always worked in content – first writing and then editing magazines, then freelancing in editorial, content marketing and customer comms. He’s most recently worked a straight-up B2B marketing role. At FLOWN, Andy creates and manages content and aims to make everything we produce as delightful as possible.

Mike Harris
Mike manages and helps direct the tech team. He's had one big career change and worked in a range of companies – from finance to art, education to deep work. Whatever he's doing, he loves working with others and building for customers. Away from his keyboard, Mike can be found tending his garden, doing various lengthy sports events – always with a good book nearby.
Likes: Gardening, reading, swimming
Olivia McDermott
Team Engagement Manager & EA
Liv is the one making FLOWN ‘happen’ in the background. She worked with Alicia at Skimlinks for more than five years, and her career covers digital marketing, a Shoreditch creative agency, and work at a skiing company before FLOWN came calling in September 2020. Liv is a mean mindful colourer, and nearly always stays within the lines.
Likes: Skiing, running, lacrosse, wine
Kristina Redek
Growth manager
Kristina is our youngest Flownie. She’s a Psychology and Management graduate from the University of St Andrews. Now at FLOWN, Kristina is our growth master and Canva whiz. She's also a passionate dancer and is one of our internal use cases for the digital nomad lifestyle.

Miguel Marin Vermelho
Full-stack developer
Half Portuguese, half Spanish Miguel grew up in Luxembourg. An enthusiastic technologist, Miguel loves building digital products – and he’s working across the full stack to help build the FLOWN experiences. Outside of dev, Miguel loves writing, football, languages, and music – and has ambitions to one day pick up a musical instrument.

Micah Yongo
Content creator
Micah loves to have a meaty creative project on the go. He’s helped produce multimedia campaigns and content for various online platforms – and also writes spec-fic novels and commissioned essays. He’s the face of the FLOWN Academy and our creative go-to. A super calm gent who turns into the Hulk if a spider invades his space.
Likes: Travelling, movies, sci-fi
Tristan Bell
Marketing executive
Tristan lives on a narrowboat called Kestrel and has a first class degree in filmmaking. He’s now on a mission to add maximum sparkle to the FLOWN member experience.
