I began my professional career in 1989 (age 19) at the world famous London Palladium theatre owned by Stoll Moss (since purchased by The Really Useful Group). I began as the assistant manager and in the eight years that I worked there I rose to the position of House Manager. At the time Stoll Moss ran twelve West End theatres so I had the opportunity to work on many musical, play and tv productions. These included Miss Saigon, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Show Boat, Fiddler on the Roof, Oliver, Phantom of the Opera and the BAFTA’s.
I was head hunted to project manage the construction and opening of a multiplex cinema in Scotland and also the remodelling and opening of the Everyman cinema in London.
After a successful career in both venue and project management I moved to South Korea in 2001.
After arriving in Korea in 2001 I started working as an English Communication Consultant with many companies including Samsung, LG, KT, Hyundai and Philip Morris to name just a few. In 2008 I began working online and created a presentation coaching website with a colleague which gained a loyal following quite quickly.
I enjoyed this area so much that I continued honing my skills in social media which got the attention of the Seoul Metropolitan Government who I began to lecture for on the subject. At present I work in this area as the CTO of World Markets Korea which I founded with a colleague in 2013.
Korea has given me many opportunities and inspiration to do a number of things which include authoring some books and also being a segment presenter on radio. I have also appeared in some tv advertisements, corporate videos and I’ve also done some voice over work.
I recently started a new radio show as the host on Sine FM a station based in Doncaster, England. The show is called ‘Time Warp’.
