Having the pleasure of joining the R&T family this June, I have paved this road after a background of new house sales, music industry management and many years at the airport in a variety of roles. I have a stunning wife and 3 wonderful daughters (at least for now). A self professed ‘rock star’ playing lead guitar in a covers and originals band, gigging most weekends and believing that is still the ‘80s! My biggest vice is my addiction to muscle cars and a 1970 Camaro is a big drain at the petrol station. I am looking forward to my future with R&T and the experiences and people it will lead me to encounter.
