Hi, I’ve been on the board since it started in 2002. I had a brand design company in Leeds from 1984 ‘til 2018 when I decided to explore other sides of my creativity. I did some filmmaking and then hatched a plan to start writing the novel I’d been waiting so long to embark on (thankyou lockdown). Much as I enjoyed branding, my life experiences since the sale of my business have been much more fulfilling – supporting my wife in her standup/comedy burlesque characterisations, being a grandad and watching my now grown-up children explore their own creative paths. I like to walk everywhere, meet everyone and learn from everything. I’m a child of the seventies, so I’m all about music, film, books and art like a character from a Nick Hornby novel, except without the football knowledge.
