My Bio

Sailed the seven seas in the Royal Navy for 23 years. In that time I learnt much about engineering from manufacturing sewage pipes to repairing Rolls Royce Gas Turbines. I also did a GCSE in business studies when I was 35 whilst at sea and got my first ever grade A ( I wasn't too clever at school!).
The business studies course had a unit in it that required the student to write out an imaginary business plan for a business they might create. I wrote a plan to start a holiday company in Plymouth and when I returned back to port I did exactly that. It was so successful, when I was offered a further ten years in the navy I was able to turn down the offer and went on to develop a couple more holiday businesses before getting involved in house restoration in 2005 and eventually starting the cast iron air bricks company in 2007
