I like to do a few things:

  • Achieving 403 Good Deeds to impact 12,000 people (after I met Bill Murray in George Clooney’s house!!!) via: wemakegoodhappen.com
  • One of the good deeds I’ve done went viral called #Tenner4Good (Tenner For Good / TennerForGood)
  • I coach people like you to achieve amazing results
  • I’ve filmed some crazy and cool things: have been at the top of volcanoes, filmed a band on top of an igloo in Lapland and have recorded Richard Branson at his family home.
  • Have filmed all around the world including Africa (Uganda and Ghana), Indonesia, Mexico and Lapland.
  • DJed around the world (played in over 30 countries), played to total of about 1 Million people
  • Before working for myself I spent 5 years at the mighty BBC. (Stints in Learning/Youth/Comedy)
  • Pre-BBC work I spent 15 years as a music producer, releasing records and DJing around the world with my best friend. We were paid to party. Yes it was as good as it sounds.
  • When I was younger and writing for newspapers I interviewed people like: Moby, Anna Friel, Massive Attack, Tricky, Orbital, David Holmes, Paul Oakenfold and DJ Shadow.
  • I love adventure, doing cool (and sometimes daft) things, I run, I love being a dad (to my 8 year old) and try to make music if there’s any time left over.
  • I also have a certificate from Guinness World Records for Most Awesome Brother. (ask me about it)
