There is alot to say about me, mainly nice things.. and some not so good..
My school days were mainly bad bullied allot but looking back at that its made me out to be a nice guy as i would hate to treat people like i was treated in my school days. im not saying that bullying is a good thing as it is not, its nasty and evil and can have a devastating effect on the person being bullied. i just choose to live with the memories giving it a positive outlook or it would still ruin my life..
I did have some good friends at school which i kept in contact with many years after school days, even had a few girlfriends as i was according to the girls a cute lad lol. wish i still was.
i joined the RAF cadets (air training corpse) when i was 13 was there for about a year was a good learning experience at the time and wearing the uniform was a proud moment as i got allot of attention of the girls.
a few years later i joined a Stafford drama group Grass Roots which was a fun experience, then tried Stafford Castle Players group where i did a few drama things at Stafford castle which was good fun, i remember the first thing i did was dress in chain mail and threaten some french tourists (was all part of the castle experience for them) then i had to pretend to chop someones head off lol good memories.
leaving school i was put straight onto a Training Course on computers this is the time when the apple IIc was the fashion before PC's and windows. all DOS training if you don't know what DOS is then Google search it lol...
this got me into computing i even remember when my dad got a ZX80 i thought it was the best thing ever, looking back it was only in the 80's 30 ish years ago and look how technology has changed its quite scary really.
through the years i grew up with the ZX spectrum, Commodore 64, amstrad, then onto pc's then amiga, atari, etc,. all the way up to PS2 and XBOX etc,. i now just have a pc and laptop which i use to create web sites and design things, also trying to write a book which is taking alot of my time.
The other most important time in my life was working at the Apollo Cinema and Social club in Stafford i started there around 1989 was a brilliant job, worked in the kiosk and went round with the ice cream tray, i tried my hand at projectionist which was cool, but hard work in them days. learned how to join films together because when they arrived at the cinema they were mainly in 3 parts. i then managed to move onto the social club side working in the bingo hall for a few months i was workin in the cinema a few days a week then the social club a few other days, it got the the point when i just worked in the bingo hall and became a bingo caller this was a brilliant job it got me used to the microphone and gained my confidence, this is where also i met Freya Copeland she is a great person to work with now though she is an actress she played Angie Reynolds in Emmerdale and also played parts in the bill and a few other programs, she was the one who got me into drama class and got to know a few people there.
There is so much of my life to tell so im trying to compress it into interesting points.
I am proud to say i have met a few famous people in my time within work. while working in the social club i met daniel odonnel and tom oconnor 2 well known names in the entertainment industry. and while at Alton Towers theme park ohh a long list lol, Blue, Girls Aloud, the 411, Carol Vorderman, Joan Collins, Samuel l Jackson. cast of hollyoaks, most soap stars, baby spice, posh and becks, max power girls, blue peter crew, Donny Osmand, most of the England football team, michael owen, etc, i dont like to bragg but its the best place to work meeting famous people lol.
