My Father was a Precision Engineer for Kodak in London, and it was always presumed that I would work in a similar job, but I was always really into movies, and as a kid can vividly remember the experience of seeing Star Wars when I was 4, Dad sneaked us into the cinema, he was always a big Star Wars fan!

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE INDUSTRY?

Getting my career started involved cycling 25 miles every day through The New Forest to work at a recording studio, called The M Corporation, located in Ringwood in the South of England.

Back then the bike was my only transport, so I had cycled a total of 50 miles by the time I got back home in the evening! Needing work experience I continued this internship for 6 months until I was hired by the company.

Well, given Tyrell’s reputation with Artificial Intelligence (Bladerunner fans will understand) it goes without saying we’re always keeping an eye on new technology and not a day goes by that there isn’t a news report about the latest development of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

One company that looks like it could potentially be the first to break into our sector is IBM or more accurately: IBM’s Watson.

The 5 day event that is IBC in Amsterdam has closed for another year. Despite the heavy rain, the very busy schedule, late nights, early morning, we return exhausted, but enthusiastic about the months or next year ahead.

We caught up with lots of existing relationships and definitely started some new one, USA, Israel & Spain to name a few we listened and witnessed the constant evolution, as everyone pointed upwards to the cloud that the industry is about to embrace, everyone with a slightly different flavour of course, that on paper should be able to collaborate.
