Ian joined the Royal Corps of Signals and after two years of training was spat out in Germany for his first working unit. His first Operational tour at the age of 19, was the first Gulf War with the Support Helicopter Force. On return back to Germany, he enjoyed what Europe had to offer indulging in exciting adventure with his 4 Squadron buddies. He had two pairs of best boots, no favourites.
Soldier of the year in 1993, a season with the ACE Mobile Force, then joining the MAOTs as a Landing Point Commander, Air Support had been fun but it was time for another challenge. Next up was a saucy stint ‘across the water’ before returning to mainland UK to wind things up. His last role was running comms onboard an Army Ship. Ironically, he got sea sick alot even though he is a diver.

Ian had learnt his DJ skills whilst serving and there was a natural progression. On leaving the Army he carved his career of becoming a Radio Presenter and Club DJ. 2020 will see three decades on the decks and its an appropriate time to hang up his headphones, deck side.
Youth Radio Rocks is now his passion, mentoring those that want to enjoy what he has over all these years. The Army gave him excitement, travel, fun and most importantly long term friends. DJing gave him the same and there is friendship to be found in music.
Once a DJ, always a DJ. Who Dares Spins.
