    I was looking to move from Kent to London in 1994 and saw a job as a sales trainee working for a paper company in the back of the Daily Mail. I met with a certain Doug Jessop and Jeremy Spring and we got on famously. The story goes that they said if I get my hair cut I could have a job, I drove straight to a barber on my way home and the rest is history...
