Many thanks for taking the time to visit my website, which is designed to provide
you with a quick overview of the colourful career I've enjoyed in the entertainment
business. Although I’m certainly not a celebrity, I have been fortunate enough to
earn a living in the industry for more than twenty-five years and travelled the world
in doing so.
You can see me providing live television at the following times on:
In 1986, I headed for the Caribbean to work for Costa Cruises as an Entertainer and
member of the Cruise Staff team. This experience changed my world forever! The passengers
clearly enjoyed my enthusiastic personality, which also made me a big hit with the
Crew. After completing a 2-year apprenticeship, at just 22, I became the youngest
Cruise Director in the world.
In 1996, when my US visa expired, I returned to the UK before flying to Greece to
troubleshoot a new shipping project for Renaissance Cruises. My newly acquired "Hollywood
education" enabled me to take my entertainment career at sea to new heights and I
soon achieved unprecedented results for 4 cruise lines. I was challenged by new and
longer itineraries, which culminated in a 60-day circumnavigation of South America
aboard the well respected classic liner, Stella Solaris.
These successes lead to a contract aboard the Seawing for Sun Cruises owned by Airtours.
It was only a small ship with 800 passengers, but the entire crew were dedicated
to success and the entertainment package was amazing when you consider the restrictive
budget. The passengers loved the ship, Crew, entertainment, deck parties, food and
itineraries, ensuring a good time for all. It was here that I met my beautiful wife,
2 years later, whilst cruising the Far East, I received an invitation to meet with
Cunard’s Head of Entertainment, Martin Lilly. After visiting Miami I became Cruise
Director aboard the world's most famous ocean liners; the QE2 and the Queen Mary
2 during her inaugural year. It was here that I achieved the pinnacle of my career
at sea, working with the finest entertainers and facilities in the industry.
After 18 years of global adventure, having found myself at the very top of my field,
I retired from the world of cruising to enjoy a new arena of challenges in television.
In 2005, after appearances on NTL, itv and Sky, I joined the award winning team at
Bid Shopping (sit-up ltd) and began presenting on a full time basis. By offering
more than 17 hours of live television each week I generated more than 20,000 hours
of live tv and sold thousands of products. After seven thoroughly enjoyable years
and becoming Head of Channel, with this fast, fun and interactive shopping channel,
I decided to expand horizons and stretch my skills by joining Ideal World. I love
my job, and if you ever watch, you'll probably be able to tell, because I'm often
informed that my enthusiasm is contagious!
