Who Am I?


Who Am I?


To give you an insight into who I am, and more importantly, what I can do for you... I've done my best to remove all the self congratulatory 'fluff' you'll find on most 'about ME' web pages. 

Here's some context and a snapshot of where I am today. 

During the last 18 months, I've learned more than in the previous 10 years, thanks to... fatherhood, an ambitious business partner and a world-class business coach. 

  • Personally I Am...

• A husband to a beautiful woman, who keeps me motivated and inspired.

• A father to a world-changing little boy who takes my happiness to new levels.

• A son of parents who have always supported me, even when they haven't understood me... and who I empathise with more now, than ever before.

• Connected to music in a way that is impossible to describe...

• Learning and implementing new skills in all areas of life.

• A fan of non-alcoholic beer! (I only found this out a few months ago... judge me if you wish).

• A lover of podcasts... Not a day goes by without having Marc Maron, Frank Skinner or This American Life in my ears.

• A big fan of travelling. I love the energy of London and the tranquility of Norway! I also lived in Germany for a while.

  • Professionally I Am...

• A teacher, who helps motivated performers maximise their potential.

• Driven to help outstanding businesses.

• Someone who believes that valuable content is the best way of creating ethical, sustained and successful business relationships.

• A consultant to businesses who specialise in luxury brands, education and music instrument manufacture. 

• A drummer and percussionist, inspired to create great feelings on stage and off it. (Here's where parallels between business teams and prospects exist).

  • Professionally I Have...

• Failed at various ventures, mainly by being constrained by my own self-limiting beliefs.

• Created a global events company with my partner James that is truly unique, brilliant and constantly evolving.

• Led the development of the Metropolis New Media System enabling business to get their message out to their existing customers and ideal prospects.

• Developed websites and marketing strategy including producing podcasts for various businesses.

• Supported and advised businesses in the retail and charity sectors.

• Scored my first business consultancy client in 2015.

• Been hired to perform with some of the greatest musicians in the world. Check out my 'Performed With' page.

• Taught at degree and post graduate levels.

• Support from the finest instrument manufacturers in the world. Check out my 'Affiliated To' page.

• Published articles on various aspects of performance and performance psychology in music print publications.

• Worked in over 25 countries among a diverse range of people.

• Surrounded myself with an incredible team of bright people who help me deliver.

  • Right now I'm currently focussed on 3 things...

• Helping outstanding businesses get their message across, by connecting them with the community around them.

• Making Metropolis the most unique and successful entertainment and marketing company in the world.

• Continuing to support outstanding musicians and creatives develop sustainable careers.
