The first motorsport I ever saw was qualifying for the 1997 British Grand Prix. That short glimpse of the greatest sport in the world got a little 7 year old hooked on F1, and from then onwards I hardly ever missed an F1 race, including saving the money to follow the circus to Monza, Spa, Melbourne and Valencia.
As soon as I turned 18 I began marshalling on the banks of the UK's circuits, and soon decided I'd like to become involved in circuit public address commentary. After getting in contact with a number of working commentators in the summer of 2009 a couple were kind enough to help me out, and towards the end of the year opportunites started to crop up which allowed me to pick up the mic myself.
In 2011 I was given a big break by Jonathan Palmer, as he asked me to provide the commentary for the live FIA Formula Two TV coverage. This exposure led to work with the FIA GT1 World Championship, and numerous other series broadcast on ESPN, Eurosport, Premier Sports and Motors TV.
An exciting addition to 2012 was working with the Olympic Broadcasting Service for London 2012, covering a range of sports. This led to continue covering the Olympics at Sochi 2014 and Rio 2016.
In 2016 I began covering every Formula 1 race for BBC Radio 5 live, as well as continuing my work as the lead commentator for the FIA Formula E Championship.
