What A Levels did you study?

Economics, Politics & History

If you went to university, where did you go and what did you study? If you didn’t go to university, what did you do instead?

I went to Brunel University London to study Modern History.

What are you doing now and what plans do you have for the future?

I currently own a production business that supplies audio visual, IT products and services to live and broadcasted events, such as festivals and alike. Going forwards, I have plans to open an office in mainland Europe as well as embarking on other business ventures.

What influence has Lancing College had on your life?

Lancing gave me the confidence to form my own path in life and through living in a boarding house, enabled me to develop interpersonal skills I wouldn’t have gained elsewhere.

What hobbies or interests did you pick up during your time at Lancing?

I developed an interest for theatrical technical production, which has morphed into a successful and prospering business.

Are you still in touch with people you met at Lancing?

Yes, a lot of people including my business partner, who is an OL too.

What OL activities have you taken part in since you left (i.e. OL sports events, Business Networks etc.)?

I endeavour to try and shoot with the OL rifle club at annual competitions. The young OL drinks is always marvellous fun too.

What advice would you give to a new pupil who is about to start at Lancing?

Stay on top of work, but make sure you get a good balance of academics, sport and socialising.
