Co-founder and Technical Director
Having spent 10 years as a sparky and 7 years in IT, in 2004 I felt the need to become my own boss again and put my love of gadgets and AV to use & decided to setup Webstract Ltd as a custom installer of Smart Home technology. It was a natural step as I understood cabling and how they should be installed from my sparky days and with my experience in IT the thought of installing technology to control the type of systems that were becoming available was a challenge I had to take.
Webstract was an immediate success and I instantly knew was the right industry for me to work in. I found the systems we installed challenging but also exciting and loved the fact that many of the homes we worked in were absolutely fabulous with indoor swimming pools and home cinemas that sounded better than the local Odeon
After Webstract had been up and running for a while I began to see a demand for this type of technology for the DIY’er and occasional installer ie Electricians, TV aerial fitters etc, who wanted this type of technology for either themselves or their customers. MustAVit was setup and has grown to be one of the most respected places to buy smart home technology today
As you might have noticed, technology and business make me tick, however outside work I try to relax with my wife (and business partner) Lisa and our 2 young children Rosie and Bobby. Time is always very precious as most business people would probably agree and the time with our kids is mostly spent in the park or out with our friends around where we live. I’ve never been great at sport but have just started to hack my way round a golf course and convincing myself this is also exercise, although the bacon butties and a few pints at the 19th soon put way to any calories burnt off. At the end of a hard day the one thing that I truly enjoy is a nice chilled glass of wine with Lisa and a bit of mellow Jazz on the radio, naturally through the multiroom entertainment system in our home.
