Q & A:
Who would you invite to your dream dinner party:
What is the worst job you've ever done?
De-rigging 2 x Smart Masts, in the dark, on top of an overflowing cesspit at a 5 star hotel between Nice and Monaco, and having to ask for assistance from the other engineers on site as I couldn’t do it on my own
If you could edit your past, what would you change?
To have realised that I should have taken up cycling around north Wales much earlier in life than just in the last 6 months before moving away
How did you end up doing what you do?
Was trapped for a week in the most boring conference ever at Olivetti near Hindehead, turning a video camera on and off every day, with Paul Dobson, at the same conference, operating the sound. At the end of the week Paul had decided to start his own business, Dobson Sound, and I decided to work with him as a freelancer . . . . over 25 years later and am still happy to be working with Paul
Proudest work achievement?
Providing the PA for the route from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey for the funeral of HRH the Queen Mother on a 7 day lead time
Best concert / gig you have ever been to?
Zoo TV : U2 at Wembley (Dobson didn’t do the sound)
Kraftwerk 1- 8 Tate Modern (Where Dobson did the sound)
The track to play to show off your eclectic tastes?
Daisies of the Galaxy by Eels
The track you wish you'd never heard?
Acid Pants by Orbital
The track you'd play at sunset in Ibiza?
Boy, Boy, Boy by Underworld
