TRAINED BY THE BEST
MY PASSIONS & EXPERTISE
Sales & Marketing
The majority of my working life has involved just about all disciplines of sales and marketing expertise. I’m highly experienced in all forms and at all levels of direct / consultative sales, and all forms of marketing. I’ve benefited from some of the best in breed training throughout my career.
I love seeking out new challenges and new opportunities to innovate, create, and personally grow. Having built more than 10 businesses around the world, there’s nothing more exciting than seeing an opportunity, developing a plan, implementing it, and achieving a successful outcome.
Electronics & Engineering
I have a formal background in electronic & robotic engineering. I’ve designed & built thousands of electronic circuits, designed / machined & built robotic arm mechanics from scratch, and even brought products to market over the years.
Website & Graphic Design
I designed my first website way back in the late 90’s – back in the days of dial-up internet and AOL, and at a time before Google existed! Since then, I’ve innovated many new online technologies, designed hundreds of websites (many of them award winning) and built / developed and grown hundreds of global brands from the ground up.
Video & film is a great passion of mine. I perform a wide range of professional video production techniques such as cinematography, 3D motion graphics, Special Effects together with script writing and audio production. I’m also an awarded stock contributor to both Getty Images and iStockPhoto.
RC FPV Building & Flying
Since the age of about 9 years old I’ve been heavily involved in the RC hobby, from cars, to helicopters, boats quadcopters and super-fast jets, I’ve built and flown / raced them all. I’ve been flying professionally as a UAV / drone pilot since 2004 and a BMFA member since the 90’s.
Astro / Solar Physics
I’ve studied all forms of science over the years, but Solar physics, Astro physics and general “NASA Stuff” is what really holds my attention. Our Universe is a big place, and new discoveries are being made each and every day. My fascination, intrigue and hunger for learning is easily satisfied keeping up to date with how our nearest star is effecting our planet and beyond.
Global Economics & Politics
I’ve lived in many different countries around the world, and discovered many unique cultures, political landscapes and economies that have given me great insight and knowledge over the years. I’ve been a special guest on talk shows, and even been part of well respected ‘think tank’ groups discussing all things global economics & politics.
