    I’ve been at Tayplay since I left college in 1996, it’s the only place I’d like to work, or it’s the only place that will hold me! A passionate paraglider, I now have two little daughters who keep me busy. Free time is dedicated to cycling: commuting, walks in local clubs and time trials; snowboard when possible.

    After working for 15 years in the Music Industry, I joined Tayplay just as Covid hit in 2020.  After 15 months of lockdown, I am now out meeting our wonderful customers. I am generally found on the golf course, listening to loud & repetitive music, eating homegrown produce from my garden. Jumped out of a plane once, and spent a fabulous 5 days building my own guitar from 5 blocks of wood.
