"Travel The World"

"We love it when a show comes together"

 Here are the links to our social media sites...

"Complete Cruise Entertainment Solutions"

I was born in Scotland at a very early age because I wanted to be near my mother at the time!

I love to make people laugh and enjoy life to the full, when translated means  "I play a lot of golf and enjoy the occasional beer"
I have worked in the entertainment and cruise industry for “several” years as a DJ/Radio Presenter, Stand up Comic and various positions in the entertainment department on cruise ships.
After spending a lot of years at sea on a variety of ships I was lucky enough to work as a Cruise Director. 
I am now an Cruise Entertainment Consultant, Developer and Booker with A1 CRUISE JOBS
So if you would like a career at sea please let me know :-)

I still travel extensively, love to visit new places and I always look forward to meeting new friends...
