Start date at MCD:
I started at MCD many years ago, February 2006 to be precise.

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?
As an avid football fan, I always wanted to become one. Ability stopped me fulfilling my dream.

Who would you NOT want to be stuck in a lift with?
As a Bristolian, I have to say any supporter from the blue (Bristol Rovers) side!

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Mexico. It's my dream holiday destination and I have been a few times.

Have you ever met anyone famous?
Gary Lineker in his Spurs days. My father used to take me every week, trying to brain wash me into liking his team.

What is the last movie you watched?
I don't really get the time having two young boys. I'd have to say Monsters University, surprisingly not a bad film.

What has been your greatest achievement?
My two young boys called Zak and Reuben.

Start date at MCD:
I started on the 5th March 2012. I had a warm welcome and still love it here!

When did you start riding?
I had a moped at 16 years old but I got my first proper bike on my 17th birthday. I love my bikes!

What was your first bike?
A Suzuki SV650. A good bike to start off with, would highly recommend all new riders to buy one, as it's a complete all round bike.

What's your ultimate bike purchase?
A Suzuki GSXR 600. I used to have one and would love to have another. I live in my biker boots and
the mileage I clock a week riding would cost me too much money in tyres and general wear and tear if I had a sports bike.

Biking heroes?
Valentino Rossi. I don't really watch bikes on TV; I'd rather ride my own in my time off.

What has been your greatest achievement?
I know it sounds really sad, but it was passing my bike test. I passed on my third attempt and it
was all I'd wanted since the age of 14.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I would love to go back packing round Australia.

Start date at MCD:
I started on the 4th of July 2011.

What was your first bike?
A Honda C50 when I was 15 years old. Then I had a Suzuki DR1215, a Suzuki RG125 Gamma, an Aprilla R5125, a Suzuki RGU250 and finally a CBR600.

What's your ultimate bike purchase?
Already bought it. A lucky strike RGU250 in factory condition. I sold it one week later and always regretted it.

Biking heroes?
I'm not really into the sport, but I like anybody who rides with confidence.

What is the last movie you watched?
Frozen - if you have kids you'll understand.

Favourite food?
It has to be either a Chinese Takeaway or home cooked toad in the hole.

What's your best biking memory?
They all blur into one happy memory soon after getting off my bike.

Start date at MCD:
15th July 2014, a career change from working for car insurers as I love scooters.

What was your first bike?
It was a Yamaha, followed by a Kawasaki Z200.

What bike are you currently riding?
Vespa PX150, in all white.

Have you ever met anyone famous?
Chris Tarrant, Lenny Henry, Sally James and Bob Carolgees all at once! (And Graham Purches only the other day, fellow scooter rider.)

Favourite book?
Keep the Aspidistra Flying by George Orwell.

What is the best present you've ever been given?
My niece turning up to my fortieth birthday party as a surprise.

What's your ultimate biking roadtrip?
Taking in as much of Ireland as possible.

Start date at MCD:
I joined the MCD team in February 2014.

Do you play any musical instruments?
I can't play any musical instruments but I can play the EastEnders theme tune on a keyboard.

Who would you NOT want to be stuck in a lift with?
Katie Hopkins because she would hate my children's names, Jayden and Reuben.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
It would have to be Rio in Brazil, I'd like to see the sights and party at the carnival.

Have you ever met anyone famous?
I once met Vernon Kay at a festival sat on a bench, but I played it cool and pretended I didn't know it was him.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
I'd buy a holiday home in Sanatoriu Ibiza…and a flashy boat.

Start date at MCD:
I started here at MCD on 3rd February 2014. I have years of experience in the insurance industry and a passion
for bikes which helps me enjoy my job.

Who would you NOT want to be stuck in a lift with?
It would have to be Louis Spence, probably because we are two very different people.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I'd really love to go to Nepal, my brother went there a few years ago and it looks amazing.

Have you ever met anyone famous?
I have met Bono from U2, as I worked in his hotel in Dublin. Also, James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers)
and funnily enough I was in a lift with him carrying his luggage in Bono's hotel.

And John Nettles (Bergerac), when I was a young lad and he was acting at the Bristol Hippodrome.

What's your favourite indoor/outdoor activity?
My favourite indoor activity is playing the drums with my band. I play a mixture of classic rock and punk, some covers some original.

My favourite outdoor activity is riding my bike, a Honda CBR 125R 2011 model.

Although my dream bike is a S1000 (BMW) which I will ride one day.

What's your current ringtone?
It's the Ace of Spades by Motorhead.

It would have to be anywhere in Northern Canada to have the Northern Lights on display most nights.

Have you ever met anyone famous?
I met David Wilkie (swimmer) in school, part of raising money for the Olympics in the eighties. I also met John Bishop

My favourite song is Angels by Robbie Williams.
