I built this site because I wanted a central place to have all the videos, links etc. I considered running a blog but decided against it for various reasons. You can still comment on the videos directly though and feel free to email me or contact me through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or YouTube.
I recognize that the videos are a little rough around the edges but hope that my passion and enthusiasm make up for that. I am thinking long term and know that at the time of writing I only have a few videos up but am confident that as each week passes, more will appear.
Later this year, I plan to have some new style videos that I don't think have been seen before and I also plan to branch out a little from the standard coaching style videos too.
If you were one of my previous pupils, a coach who worked with me or somebody who started squash because of the SRA/Dunlop Squash Roadshow I would LOVE to hear from you. Thanks for reading, now get back to practising!
I started playing tennis when I was about 11 and didn't try squash until I was 15 or 16. I then played a few years with some friends and it wasn't until after the Guinness World Record that I began to take it more seriously.
Obviously, I was too old to really have a shot at being a professional, but I became the coach at the Wembley Squash Centre and managed to practice with plenty of professionals, including Jahangir Khan.
I got a call to work with the Middlesex juniors and became the County Coach for a number of years, this put me in touch with the regional set up and I became the London and South East assistant coach, to Graham Stevenson.
Around this time I heard about the Dunlop Roadshow and thought it sounded fantastic. I remember finding the organisers telephone number and calling him asking to join. He said "You have to be a Dunlop sponsored coach to join in. "So make me a Dunlop coach!" I replied. A little while later I joined my first roadshow and met Chris Clare and Jonah Barrington.
Being young and fearless I treated everybody the same and was telling Jonah what to do. Anyway, I seemed to have made a positive impression and was asked to attend all the weekends.
Eventually, I took over the running of the whole event, along with my girlfriend at the time, without whom I would certainly not have been able to do it.
By this time I was a regular coach at the Junior National Squads, working with Paul Wright - who is an amazing coach.
From this point, I moved onto Squash promotions Manager for Dunlop Slazenger and kept some coaching activities. Having missed the day-to-day coaching, I resigned from Dunlop and went back to coaching, where I ended up at the Lansdowne Club as club coach.
I loved my time there, but in the autumn of 2002 I moved to Spain and started teaching English. I have always enjoyed teaching but missed the feeling of being on court and in January 2013 decided to find a way back into it.
