Commentary & Presenting
Commentary is my passion. As you'll see in my About Page, I grew up being treated to some of the best commentators to ever grace the airwaves - Murray Walker and Martin Brundle, Charlie Cox and John Watson being some prime examples. I thoroughly enjoyed the excitement that they brought to races and broadcasts they were associated with and - even from a young age - I always had an appreciation of how they emphasised things and knew exactly what to say with such accuracy and speed.
I always try to reflect a mixture of these aspects in my approach to commentary as well - learning driver names, getting pronunciation correct and ensuring I'm clear and precise in what I say, while also injecting some character into the wording and phrases I'm using. After all, I believe that if you sound like you're enjoying what you're commentating on and reflect that in your voice, the viewers and spectators will get some enjoyment out of it too.
I've been commentating since May 2018, where I made my debut on Apex Racing TV, covering the British Sim Racers MX-5 Pro Series on iRacing. Since then, 90% of my work has been on iRacing, whether it be for the aforementioned Apex Racing TV, Racespot TV, my own series or projects, or Simracersworld TV which I help manage the broadcasts for.
I began broadcasting as well as commentating on iRacing in February 2019, quickly gaining a reputation as one of the very best one-man shows in sim racing - my ability to multi-task in such a way is something I'm very proud of and gets a lot of praise on a weekly basis from viewers. It also means that any series or broadcasters looking to pay for commentary don't have to spend as much as they would for a two or even three-man team.
My first "real world" commentary was back in October 2018 - I got in touch with MSV about voluntarily shadowing a commentator at Oulton Park as I only live a few miles from there. I was placed in the box on the start/finish straight with Clyde Woodward for the BARC end-of-season meeting, where I was given the chance to commentate on the Junior Saloon Car Championship's two races that day and conduct driver interviews at the end of each.
Immediately after Race two I was greeted by two fathers of the drivers, complimenting my energy and style, describing me as a breath of fresh air - this was a real confidence boost coming from the world of sim racing where commentators are plentiful.
Since then I've burst on to the scene, commentating on the Creative Funding Solutions Sports 2000 Championships and 24 Hours of the Nurburgring in 2020, with a pair of European series to my name in 2021 - Clio Cup Europe and the FIA European Truck Racing Championship, working alongside some of the very best names in the industry along the way!
I still commentate on sim racing events that I can do from my office at home, with availability to work in front of camera and on stage as an MC - both of which I have professional experience in. There's a lot to cover, so I'll keep an updated list of events where I've commentated or presented, on this page below;

I'm always looking for more exciting opportunities to cover different series, preferring real-world racing over sim racing as that's where I would like to progress in my career. Please head over to my Contact Page if you wish to book me for any upcoming events or series.
Below is my 2021 Showreel that contains a variety of my sim racing and real-world motorsport work from 2020 and some commentary from January 2021.
