Born​ ​and​ ​raised​ ​in​ ​Sussex,​ ​I​ ​discovered​ ​my​ ​love​ ​of​ ​engineering​ ​at​ ​a​ ​young age,​ ​and​ ​often​ ​took​ ​things​ ​apart​ ​just​ ​to​ ​put​ ​them​ ​back​ ​together​ ​again.​ ​Later,​ ​I​ ​delved deeper​ ​into​ ​the​ ​subject​ ​as​ ​I​ ​pursued​ ​Design​ ​Technology​ among my ​A-levels.​ ​I​ ​graduated​ ​from Birmingham​ ​University​​ ​with​ ​a​ ​degree​ ​in​ ​Geology.​ ​Soon​ ​after​ ​leaving​ ​school,​ ​I​ ​was selected​ ​for​ ​the​ ​cast​ ​of​ ​​STOMP​,​ ​and​ ​spent​ ​almost​ ​a​ ​decade​ ​drumming​ ​for​ ​the​ ​show​ ​in London,​ ​Paris,​ ​and​ ​Boston.

I​ ​began​ ​teaching​ ​myself​ ​programming​ ​during​ ​my​ ​years​ ​as​ ​a​ ​performer.​ ​When​ ​I​ ​left​ ​the stage​ ​in​ ​2007,​ ​I​ ​began​ ​a​ ​successful​ ​second​ ​career​ ​as​ ​a​ ​freelance​ ​web​ ​developer after moving to Los Angeles,​ ​and continued​ ​my​ ​education​ ​with​ ​programming​ ​classes​ ​at​ ​​UCLA​. Blessed with our first child in 2011, we moved to New Orleans where I spent nearly a decade working for various agencies and helping my wife’s business to grow. I’ve returned to Sussex with a thirst for Europe and its culture and a sober, serious desire for a long term and satisfying career of challenge and self improvement. I​ ​am​ ​a​ ​happy​ ​husband​ ​and​ ​father​ ​of​ ​2​ ​wonderful​ ​children.
