‘I really liked it. It was really good. The way you enjoy the music when its on makes me enjoy the music too. Sometimes people hear a song and listen to it a few times before they really like it. But when you put the songs on we can see you enjoy it. Then i enjoy it too. I think thats really clever. I was expecting you would put the music on and just talk to whoever is in the background. But its like you are listening with us and that is, like i said, clever’- by AQ

He is a qualified pharmacist of 12 years. He is also a self taught house Dj who has played in clubs around London. He is a semi pro photographer having photographed every event under the sun including weddings, athletic events, protests, portraits, street photography and concert photography which ultimately is his favourite.
