Welcome to my site.
I think the best phrase to describe me is a "fun-loving opportunist". I love travel adventures (the biggest recent regret was selling my motorhome - mistake!) and whilst the word 'opportunist' generally has negative connotations for me it is just someone that takes advantages of opportunities when they arise. I've always liked a challenge, been prepared to take a few risks - anything but being safe.
I set up my first business In Your Space on 23rd July 1999 the month after I graduated (I did French, Spanish & Marketing if you're wondering). I've still got the business 18 years later. We specialise in truck media campaigns across Europe. I saw a young guy in Dragons' Den recently pitching the truck media concept. It took me back to the time I started out working from my bedroom at my parents' house. That seems like a long time ago.
I also have a company called The Clear Idea and our work is featured on this site. We specialise in transparent showcases and bespoke vehicles / structures. We are also developing our latest technology to help clients in the automotive sector create a better customer journey inside and outside the showroom (hence all my international travel recently). More on that coming soon.
I also like to keep fit (I love swimming as you can probably tell from my photos) so I set up another business called The Outdoor Fitness Collective. We do adventure travel. I am just planning a white water rafting trip down the world's deepest canyon in Peru having had so much fun in Nepal last year as you can tell from below. There's trip info here. Post script: due to my workload and the fact that I snapped my achilles tendon last summer I have had to put The OFC on the back-burner. It really was a painful moment. After 10 years of triathlon injury-free I managed to put myself out of action just playing cricket! One thing I have learnt is not to take my health for granted. It really has been a slow journey back to fitness.
