From boy soldier to paratrooper, private security operator to successful business entrepreneur. This is the story of a natural-born warrior with the vision and determination to chase and achieve his dreams.
Despite a fear of heights, he passed into the Paras and patrolled the streets of West Belfast. Despite a lack of sea legs, he protected shipping lanes from Somali pirates. He faced the Mujahideen in Afghanistan, outwitted the insurgents in Iraq and worked alongside revolutionaries in Libya as they fought to oust Gaddafi.
He lived and worked with diverse people from all walks of life, from local tribesmen in Sudan, to the Nigerian mobile police units in the Niger Delta. He worked the bars and night club doors of London and protected the ultra-rich and famous in their castles and mansions around the world.
His career tracked many of the world’s most recent conflicts and wars, and he witnessed first-hand as recent history’s most notorious dictators were brought down. With stoicism, a large helping of military humour and a down to earth attitude of getting the job done he survived bombings, shootings, and rocket bombardments, the constant threat of IEDs or being captured by insurgents. This is the story of no ordinary man.
