It all started back in 1991, presenting on the infamous 103.2 Power FM. Neil held down the position of overnight host, while studying media and film at college during the day. Certainly a tricky work life balance for a 16 year old. Once graduated, he then set upon a journey around the country to gain experience and knowledge at a variety of the UK’s best loved radio stations. Neil was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to be part of the main presenting teams at Horizon Radio, Northants 96.6FM, B97 and TFM – before landing the dream job of daytime DJ at Galaxy 105 in Leeds.
Galaxy 105 was a huge turning point in my life.. Neil's passion of dance music and radio were fused together, helping him to ride the wave of the brand and deliver record breaking audience figures. He would regularly DJ all over the country for brands like Deja Vu & Gatecrasher as well as further afield tours in Ibiza, Miami & Tenerife and it was here that he caught the attention of the management team at 95.8 Capital FM, who gave an offer he couldn’t refuse.
In 2003 Neil became the afternoon presenter on the now legendary London station, working alongside Chris Tarrant, Jeremy Kyle & Neil Fox. He presented in front of 100,000 people at Party In The Park, was the go to expert for entertainment stories on Sky News and remixed a top 40 hit. This was also the time that heralded the start of his voiceover career, catching the ear of Haymarket Publishing and became one of the main live voiceover artists for awards on Park Lane – alongside Alan Dedicoat.
In 2008 Neil moved to Heart 106.2fm and was lucky enough to be given the Drivetime Show. In an ever growing competitive market he managed to score a number 1 position, while also becoming the main cover host for Jamie Theakston on Heart Breakfast. Neil presented alongside Emma Bunton, Gina D’Campo and Alexandra Burke and interviewed a plethora of guests including Liam Neeson, Michael Caine and Bob Hoskins.
But it was the end of 2012 that was the most pivotal moment of his career, leaving Radio behind and becoming the founding member of a boutique creative video communications agency that helps brands and events showcase themselves online.
