About Me

I'm a graphic artist/social media/marketing 'guru'. I'm also an experienced presenter/producer for our local radio station Marlow FM. I'm married to a print journalist, Hayley, & we're parents to 23 yr old identical twin daughters, Phoebe and Bella, who completed their MA in Music Theatre in 2019. I'm passionate about radio, music, the theatre, real ale & Chelsea FC. I'm a 'glass half full' chap and proud Yorkshireman. I'm calm & collected when I need to be, not easily fazed, but can also be enthusiastic and (sort of) energetic. Alas, my knees are giving up on me & can be painful (old rugby injuries) so my jogging days are behind me. Having said that, I'm determined to keep as active as possible and I still possess a good sense of humour. I'm keen to expand on my acting and supporting artist experiences and continue to hone my skills. I love the camaraderie and the diverse range of folk one meets on productions. Bring on my next challenge. Onwards and upwards to greatness say I.

Employment History & Experience

I had my first taste of being an extra in a two day video shoot in September 2016 for an indie-folk-pop band called Stealing Sheep in which I played the part of a postman. The video was directed by Dougal Wilson of Blink Productions (John Lewis, Ikea, Heinz TV ads) who apparently personally selected me for this particular role on seeing my photographs.
I had a speaking role as a character named Marcellous Magnus in a Bucks New University student film called 'Invisible Dream'.
I was one of five cast members in a short film called 'Aping' co-written by and directed by Theo Gelernter & Ian Bousher. Produced by Theo Gelernter. See: https://www.theogee.net/

Employment History & Experience

I graduated with a BA (Hons) in graphic design from Wolverhampton University, but whilst there I twice served on the student union as social secretary which fuelled my love for music and for presenting. I spent ten years as a club and mobile DJ and also dabbled in pirate radio. I applied for many presentation jobs in mainstream/local radio over a number of years, came close on a few occasions but, alas, ‘no cigar’.

I’m one of the founding directors of our local community radio station, Marlow FM. I was the station programme controller along with being a producer and presenter during the 4 years we were broadcasting online, and for the last 4 years since we were awarded an FM licence I’ve been producing and presenting a variety of daily and weekly radio shows. I often write the scripts for adverts and sometimes voice them as well. I do a lot of interviewing, both face to face and over the telephone, and do all my own editing and final production work.
