I joined the 501st in 2015 because I wanted be part of a group dedicated to raising money for all sorts of needy causes and I have a passion for Star Wars. Before this I was in a Indi-Pop-Punk band in the mid 90's called FLinCH and although the band is now defunct, our music is still available online (if you know where to look.) Around 1998 I went into producing themed floats and outfits for Carnivals. Then after a decade of working with costumes, I opened my own Prop Replica and Fancy Dress Shop called 'Master of Disguise'. Since then I split my time with my family and meeting many weird and wonderful people at work and also at the 501st legion.
I'm the current Public Relations Officer at the IW Garrison and liaise with many other groups accross the region.
My other interests are films directed by John Carpenter, Brian De Palma, Luc Besson, Jim Henson and John Hughes. I'm also keen on musicans such as David Bowie, Guns N' Roses, Queen, Aerosmith, the B52's and anything I can hum.
