2007 To Date: JustListen2This Publicity and Promotions
Specialist sports and music publicity, promotion and sponsorship consultant.
With a background in international marketing support services, formerly being part owner and creative director of International Advertising and PR agency CMES Advertising, and a long time passion, and direct business involvement, in the music (Musician, Artist Management and Promotion) and sports (Motor Sport and Boxing) industries as well as a regularly published writer for music and sports publications such as Rock Monster, Boxing Republic, Boxeo Mundial, Fight Hype and Diamond Boxing, it felt natural to combine my many talents and specialist skills to assist upcoming, and established, artists, bands, sports men & women as well as associated businesses to gain quality exposure required to succeed in the media oriented world today.
Currently my client base is drawn mainly from the pugilistic arts and includes World Champion, and aspiring, boxers and MMA exponents in both America and the United Kingdom as well as event promoters, a boxing equipment manufacturer and various Philadelphia and London based boxing gyms.

In September 2010 TKO Boxing Gym's Johnny Eames and myself created an on-line boxing specific ticketing website to assist promote ticket sales for boxers signed to his stable.
2007 2010: PugilistMatch
PugilistMatch.com was a free on-line boxing matchmaker website.
The website was created to provide boxers from around the world that are seeking fights to achieve totally free direct access to boxing matchmakers and promoters.
I do intend to re launch PugilistMatch in the near future, once a complete redesign, including an auto update system, is completed, as during its time this portal had directly aided many hundreds of boxers around the world gain fights, and in one case - Mark Oaktree Brown this directly lead to a national title shot, which he won.
1996 2002: Rothschild-Di Caro
Initially my involvement was as financial investor. However due to my marketing background this soon became a hands on involvement with myself becoming creative director.
The company started life a vehicle for upcoming singer/song writer Lauren Mayer-Rothschild but soon developed into a integrated music group which included artist management and promotion - Intelligent Music Solutions - , two record labels - Roadkill Records (Rock) and Kriminal Records (R&B/Soul/Dance) -, event promotion - Hyperactive Promotions -, two London based recording studios and music magazine - Rock Monster.
1988 1995: CMES Advertising Ltd
In June 1988, novelist Cheryl Mildenhall and myself founded a small Advertising partnership in Leicestershire. Cheryl as Managing Director and Copywriter and myself as Creative director - art and design.
Initially the client base was drawn from local manufacturers, but due to Cheryl being a linguist and my many international contacts we soon acquired multi-national clients such as GEC Alsthom, Couture, HP Sauces, Trunature etc as well as multi lingual European projects for the British Government, both pre and post 1992, including projects for the UK European Community presidency period.
In 1990 CMES joined forces with Hellmann & Hunke GmbH to become one of the founding partners of B.E.S.T. In Europe and create the first pan-European Advertising and PR agency group.
1982 1987: TCR Racing
Wholly owned and operated Professional Motor Racing Team
During the nineteen eighties I owned TCR and campaigned various types of vehicles in professional motor sport.
My most success was in the field of Drag Racing, where I not only established many international and domestic records - some of which still stand today - but was also NDRC Top Fuel Dragster Champion and European Top Fuel Champion for three consecutive seasons.
After a serious accident I retired from competitive racing, however my involvement with the sport continued. I, along with Mike Kason, created the Supercharged Outlaws series, which still operates today in fifteen countries.
1971 1985: Multi-Disciplined Motor Group
At the tender age of seventeen I bought a second hand vehicle recovery truck, from this humble beginning the business grew to become a multi-disciplined motor group comprising of various main dealerships, garages and vehicle repair workshops including Heston Service Area on the M4 Motorway - as well as accessory shops, speed and custom equipment distributors, motor racing preparation and the largest fleet of recovery vehicles in the south of England.
1969 1973: Musician
Whilst I was still at school my Guitar and Bass playing skills came to the attention of a London based UK/USA band Jo Jo Gunne, who were searching for a temporary Bass player to cover for their injured Bassist.
I was enlisted, initially for studio duties, and featured on their second album. I was then asked to be the Bassist for the second half of their European tour.
After the tour I began undertaking studio session work and have played on various top ten hits, including eight UK, European, American and World wide #1 hits.
