Reserved, hard working and intellectual – his passions, though not well known to the public, were the basis for him forming Flightmode Digital. The name Flightmode came from the time he spent in between DJ gigs on planes where all his devices were turned off. While most people would be sleeping and resting, he used that time to create music and strategise about his business interests.
