Job Title: Managing Director
- When did you join Demon Wheelers?
I was there from the very start.
- How did you come to work at Demon Wheelers?
Many years ago when I was 11, my father sent me to work for a friend of his who owned some quad bikes on a farm. He used to provide children's quad bike parties. I would work there every Saturday until I was 14, when he sold the business and the new owner was my dad. At age 18, I went and did my own thing for a while and then came back when I was 21, and I've been here ever since.
- What is your favourite event?
Through Demon Wheelers and all of our brands we provide so many different events, it is hard to put a finger on just one. I do however, have a love of Rage Buggies and Chain Reaction is a wonderful event. However, my favourite type of event is when a client wants us to create a bespoke event and are then amazed at the end product. The feeling of having an ecstatic client can't be beaten.
- What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
My beautiful wife and I like to go out for meals and drinks whenever possible. We also like to have a little trip abroad with Italy being our favourite destination. I also try and see my beloved Sheffield Wednesday when I get the chance.
- What is your favourite film?
From Here to Eternity - a masterpiece in film making.
- What is your favourite drink?
Non alcoholic - Evian Water. Alcoholic - I'm a big red wine fan, mainly Rioja. I also enjoy a nice cold beer along with Gentleman's Jack Daniels on the odd occasion.
- What is your favourite food?
Fillet steak followed by more steak...
- First album you ever bought?
I like to claim it was Michael Jackson's Thriller but I think in actual fact it was Kylie Minogue's first album.
- If you could meet one famous person dead or alive, who would it be?
Frank Sinatra - coolest man of all time. Fact.
- Favourite place you have ever visited?
Hard to narrow down but... Bardolino by Lake Garda for food, drink and views. Las Vegas for fun and good times.
- What is your best memory of working for Demon Wheelers/Wildfire?
Having been here for over 25 years, it's hard to put a finger on one particular memory. But seeing the company grow and still have the same passion for events, is my best memory that keeps happening over and over again.
