About Me

About Me

Festival Owner, Podcast Host and Entrepreneur. 

My unconventional childhood growing up living above pubs in London gave me a different outlook to life, business and Entrepreneurship. 

I’ve been an entrepreneur for as long as I can remember, from selling tickets to the nightclub next door as a 10 year old to owning Bournemouth 7s Festival and attracting 30,000 people each year.

I host the Eventful Entrepreneur Podcast and we have rocketed into the top 0.5% podcasts globally and listened to in 125 countries. 

I also Co Host the Harry Redknapp Show interviewing Piers Morgan, Rod Stewart, Eddie Hearn, Romesh Ranganathan, Frank Lampard to name a few!

Eventful Entrepreneur Podcast

On this podcast I chat to proper characters who have lived eventful lives. From Starts Ups to Sporting Celebs, Founders to Festival Owners, Entrepreneurs to Rock Stars, Gangsters to SAS Heroes, Addiction to Billionaires and everything in between.

The instant success and growth of the podcast led to me being invited to co-host the Harry Redknapp Show with the man himself. 

Bournemouth 7s Festival

Since I created  Bournemouth 7s in 2008, it has become the World’s Largest Sport & Music Festival, attracting 30,000 people and 400 teams to the south coast each year.

We are still privately owned by myself and my wife Fleur and are very lucky to have a tight team of 9 people who work on this festival all year round. On the bank holiday weekend we have 100 DJ’s and over 1,000 staff working the festival each day.

Our entire B7s team share a huge passion for sport, music and attention to detail.

I spotted a potential event staff shortfall, and that people were facing barriers to entry that weren’t neccasary. I wanted to nurture the next generation of event professionals using an online course that features the top 40 experts from across the UK. The Event Crowd was born!
