I started making and designing kites in 1973 while still at Art College. The hobby grew into a job when i started working in Europe’s first kite shop in Bristol in 1976. I swapped the cash register for the sewing machine and set up my own business in 1982, designing and producing my own range of kites.

In 1986 i helped set up and run the Bristol International Kite Festival with Avril Baker and John Peyton. This has gone on to become one of the countries top Kite Events with a great International reputation.

Kites have been a great passport for travel – I’ve been invited to fly and display my kites all over the world at Kite Festivals and for Commercial Events.
