Born in the UK, prior to emigrating with my family in 1974, I started cycle racing – winning 2 English National Titles & a National record at the age of 13.
Completing my schooling in SA, I embarked on an “apprenticeship” as factory production manager, paving the way for me to establish my own businesses, which ran successfully for around 15 years.
Merging in 2000, I assisted with in the formation of arguably the largest Cycle clothing producer in SA today – Velotex.
Wishing to travel, I sold my shares & sought various employment opportunities while overseas, gaining invaluable & varied work experience as a building labourer, delivery driver, shelf packer, barman, waiter & call centre operator – before accidentally finding myself working in the Duty Free retail sector on Cruise ships, eventually becoming a manager.
Returning home between contracts in 2006, I was approached by “The Great Event Company” (Australian's) who offered me a partnership opportunity if I were to consider driving their operation in Cape Town. Unfortunately a short lived project, I fortunately found myself promoting & exhibiting sportswear & casual clothing, for Influence Clothing.
However the challenges & opportunity of setting up the gift shops on the largest Cruise ship in the world, took me off again - to Finland & back to ships, until May 2010 – when I returned to Cape Town, with my Fiancé, where I currently reside - Freelancing as a Tour Guide, Chaperone, Driver, Events Co-ordinator & or Promoter.
