Journey

My Personal Journey

A view of my eventful life as an entrepreneur.

London Pubs

I grew up in London, living above pubs from the age of 4-18. I became streetwise at an early age and quickly learned how to sell and promote. It wasn’t a normal upbringing but it was a Win Win for me as I was able to grow my entrepreneurial spirit and start up various businesses from a young age.

Sports

Sport has been an important part of my life. I’ve been lucky enough to have played rugby in Australia and France, plus a season in New Zealand. I represented Wasps Academy and then went onto play for Leicester Tigers during my university years.

Playing sport has given me unbelievable contacts which has enabled me to create two sports businesses.

University

I Went to Loughborough Sports Uni, met friends for life, had a proper laugh, played rugby and partied hard.

Oh and somehow managed to get a Sports Degree!

Nightclubs

In my 20’s I created 3 student nightclub brands: Fill Ya Boots, Pop Ya Cherry & BubbleLuv and scaled the business to 12 nightclubs every week across the UK.

I ended up putting on 1,500 club nights over a 10 year period across 40 cities.

Loads of funny stories along the way!

Festivals

In my 30’s I launched a Sport & Music Festival called Bournemouth 7s, known as the ‘Sporting Glastonbury’.

On the last bank of May each year, we host 30,000 people, 400 teams & 12 festival arenas.

We launched the festival in the last global recession in 2008 and are proud to be one of the very few festivals in the UK that are still independently owned.

It’s been an incredible journey so far with many laughs, tears, sleepless nights & funny stories.

Sportswear

After two years of Research & Development we launched Viper 10 Sportswear in 2012.

The brand rapidly gained global recognition in Australia, New Zealand, Dubai and in the UK.

After 8 years of disrupting the market, Viper 10 was acquired by a big company in the sportswear industry.
