In September 1990 I was brought to Japan for the launch of the first Virgin Megastore in Marui department store Shinjuku, Tokyo. I came on a three month contract but was still DJ’ing for Virgin Megastores Japan when the last store was rebranded Tsutaya in December 2008. I started out as Virgin Megastore DJ in Sydney in 1988, so I was a Virgin for 20 years (yeah OK I had to make one virgin joke).

I had some brilliant experiences in those 20 years, including creating the UK Night at Milk Club in Ebisu in the Brit Pop boom of the early 90′s, producing the Virgin Atlantic Airways in-flight J-pop channel, starting Virgin Mega Station cable/satellite radio network in 1997, setting up Virgin club tents and chillout zones at Fuji Rock Festivals, and interviewing hundreds of inspiring artists. I would like to say a huge thank you to DJ Sayoko Kamei, producer Dennis Oliver and my former boss Mike Inman who made it all possible.

BCCJ British Business Award 2013!!

Friday, November 8th, 2013

I am so honoured and quite frankly still in shock and awe at not only being nominated for but also being the recipient of the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan, British Business Awards Person of the Year 2013!!

My Inter FM program LHR – London Hit Radio – co-host Madoka “Maddie” Kato and I were asked a number of months ago to MC for the Friday November 2nd 2013 ceremony for the second year running which was an honour in itself. We had a marvelous time.

But when I discovered a couple of weeks before the event that I had been nominated for the Person of the Year award I was totally (and delightfully) surprised.

Being presented the award by British Ambassador to Japan Tim Hitchens was a very special moment.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to all at the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan and in particular President Alison Jambert, Executive Director Lori Henderson MBE, the Executive Committee and BCCJ members for this recognition.

I absolutely love the work I do and hope to continue providing a media and events platform for British music, arts, culture, fashion and business in Japan.

I am immensely grateful. Thank you.
