The three manliest things I've ever done:
- Mooned a shark
- Blown up a zombie (target) using an M249 SAW machine gun
- Been beaten up by a girl (in my defence, she was the European champion).
I used to be a touring sound engineer until I decided I fancied a job with less chance of getting crippled and better pay, so I joined a large digital agency as an analyst, progressing swiftly to head analyst and then on to technical manager. After that I went freelance for a while doing project management until starting at QC. Four years later, turns out I like it here.
Workwise, I do tech and try to think up other clever things to do/build which improve what we do.
I've worked with a lot of big names, including Hilton Hotels, AllSaints, T-Mobile, Orange, Aggreko, Financial Times, Barclays Bank, Tesco, Boots, and the Daily Telegraph.
My major hobby is music, which I both listen to and play. My band has been on Radio 1 a bunch of times, released on minor indie labels and played across the tannoy at SPL stadiums (although I'm nowhere near as successful as either Gill or Alex. Curse them.). I also enjoy scuba diving, snowboarding, Thai boxing, and making friends with enormous dogs.
