Born and bred in Banbury, I grew up with a passion for video games, movies and reading. At school I had a real passion for history and storytelling. At the age of 15 I decided I want to be a film director. I studied Media at the North Oxfordshire College and School of Art (now OCVC) and passed with distinction. After that you might say I squandered my opportunites by ending up in Blockbusters. Having tired of this I moved to Sheffield as my best friend was studying up there and it seemed as good a place as any to start. After just over a year I had yet to gain anything from my Sheffield experience, until fate led me onto an online dating site and I met my future wife. Meeting Geri led me to Cardiff, where we moved in together, and after 5 years finally decided to tie the knot! When our tenancy was not extended we found ourselves somewhat homeless and decided the time was ripe for a move. So we ended up back in my hometown Banbury, where we have happily settled in, much to my surprise, with better jobs and better quaility of life. We have made new friends and new connections and the future seems bright.
