What attracted you to start/operate your business in Huddersfield?
Huddersfield is such a proud place for me, I love everything about it. The football club (HTAFC), was a big factor for me, I love what Huddersfield stands for!
I started my video career making videos for a children’s banking company, goHenry, this only happened through me having a YouTube channel and creating a review on this card, they commented saying how much they enjoyed it. I then contacted them asking if I could make more exclusive YouTube content for them (this maybe is my first memory of having an ‘entrepreneurial’ spirit).
I actually didn’t take any subjects that linked to video during my time at The Mirfield Free Grammar, I didn’t want high school to make video boring. I loved working with computers so I took computer science and after 2 years, let’s just say it wasn’t my favourite subject. But that didn’t stop me, so I took my own spin on video.
Name some of your biggest business achievements:
- Working with Budweiser China before I was legally allowed to drink alcohol!!
