Born and raised in a small town named Knottingley in West Yorkshire, England, I lived with my parents and two brothers up until the age of 18, when I moved to Stoke-on-Trent to study Film, TV & Radio Studies at Staffordshire University.
Post Graduation I was offered a Trainee Management Programme placement at Gala Coral where I went on to gain my Gaming License. I consequently spent 5 years managing various Gala Bingo Hall’s up and down the country, following which I managed to put my degree to good use and moved into the Broadcasting Industry to manage Gala’s interactive gaming television channel that was produced by Endemol.
After 10 eventful years at Gala Coral Ltd, I was offered a position at William Hill Plc to set up and manage their online Bingo Business. I re-located to Gibraltar where I quickly established a successful online bingo product and management team. Within less than two years William Hill had a competitive, market leading product and a multi million pound revenue generating product now firmly placed within its portfolio.
Within 3 years at William Hill I was appointed to Head of New Channels. In my new capacity, I laid the foundation for William Hill’s mobile gaming products, this then quickly led to a new role as Head of Mobile Gaming.
Following the successful launch of William Hill’s mobile gaming products I went on to manage the entire gaming product portfolio across all gaming platforms (Casino, Games, Vegas, Live Casino, Bingo & Poker) for William Hill.
After 16 years in the gaming business and with a couple of Industry Awards under my belt I decided to take a well earned career break to focus on some of my personal ambitions.
I am now on a world wide adventure with my partner Olof. We are travelling around the world in the most economically viable way possible, learning how to become self sustainable under the guidance of Permaculture whilst volunteering and giving back as much as possible to the planet and it’s people along the way.
Whilst travelling I am available for consultation work and guest talks in online gaming and business management. In addition to Gaming consultation I am also available for travel planning, travel articles/blogs, travel photography, web management and general online or retail business consultation.
