Biography

If one could bottle up a strategy on how to beat adversity and show resilience, maybe I might just have it. A former footballer at Carlisle and Mansfield, sadly not Chelsea or Manchester United. I have dealt with the disappointment of leaving the professional game, attacked with vigour a second career in the media — working at 4 blue-chip brands (ITV, BBC, Sky and Bloomberg) — then beat stage 4 cancer. Now embarking on the next chapter in life, as a media consultant, specialising in start-ups and banking. I sit at the intersection of broadcast, content, digital and e-commerce.
And I enjoy helping people achieve their goals and aspirations.
