joined a High-Street Bank, working my way up from the boy who makes
the tea all the way to Cashier and Customer Service supremeo....
whilst working out of every branch in South West Sussex at one
time or another in my 7 years.
Now working for a multi-million dollar international company,
managing and developing their online customer service support

Chichester Hospital Radio at 16, and spent 8 years broadcasting,
fundraising, producing and ward visiting.
involved in 2 charity broadcasts for Radio Cracker in Worthing
in 1992 and 1993. I helped arrange a trial broadcast for the

Chichester Hospital Radio’s "Member of the Year" 1994 (and I’ve

and thought to myself this could be a bit of a side-line. Was
asked to cover a New Years Eve function in 1995, using borrowed
equipment, and after borrowing it for a few other gigs, brought
it outright in 1997! Currently doing discos as the resident DJ
at a local sports club, but will consider most bookings

the films of Quentin Tarentino (except Jackie Brown... that one
never really grabbed me). On the telly I'll never miss an
episode of Hollyoaks (how sad am I...?); and classic British
Classic Comedy on DVD. The collection just
keeps growing... Complete Blackadder, Phoenix Nights, Fawlty
Towers, Brasseye, The Simpsons, Little Britain and loads of
stuff I taped off the telly!
