Place of birth:


How did you end up in PR?

I did a Master’s in it. After finishing my undergrad degree in media, I took a year out to work and in that time I looked for a Master’s course in media. The best of the bunch was the University of Gloucestershire in PR and Comms, and the rest is history.

Are there any aspects of PR you’re particularly keen on?

The bits with the public… and the relations. 

But in all seriousness I’m looking forward to working on campaigns for clients and seeing my work out in the real world.   

Favourite film?

How can you have one!! I love the classics like The Italian Job (1968), The Phantom Menace and Kung Fu Panda. Real cinema.

Favourite site to waste time on?

Instagram and Amazon, it’s a deadly combo. 

Why PR?

It’s the fun bit of marketing. PR gives the opportunity to be creative, working with different clients and people from all walks of life.

Tell us three interesting facts about you:

1) I once had a helicopter ride, it was an air ambulance going to hospital, but still counts

2) I was an 11lbs baby

3) I played American football for 5 years

Dream client:

Anything to do with YouTube but if I had to choose one, I’d choose Logan Paul.

Describe yourself in a sentence:

I’m just a simple man making my way in the universe.
