Born in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire, in 1993, a home-grown country-bumpkin, Guy attended Wellington College where he participated in the International Baccalaureate. Although scoring lower than concerned teachers and relations (not to mention himself) would have liked, Guy went on to spend a year working for a hotel where he made several treasured friends.
He studied Medical Product Design BSc at the University of Hull, having convinced himself of the futility of following his creative urges, whereupon he learnt many valuable skills arguably the most useful of which has been how to work efficiently with a hangover.
Graduating in 2015, Guy moved home and began finding whatever jobs would pay. He continued as a long-serving dinghy sailing instructor at Hawley Lake Sail Training Centre, Frimley (a place which has always been close to his heart) before working in a Pet Shampoo factory and becoming a cocktail-trained bartender.
After returning to the sailing club for a summer, he became a bartender at a pub, the Waggon and Horses in Hartley Wintney, which refreshed in him the sense that even fly-over counties have stories to be told.
Nine months passed at the pub before it was time to move on, ostensibly to work further on the ever-growing novel whose teething pains meant it was unlikely to leave the drawing board. Then, along came a spider.
Guy was inducted to the Film Industry by two days’ work on Tomb Raider, before accepting a varied retinue of daily contracts as a Location Marshal. Nowadays, he continues chasing down leads on jobs through famously-uncommunicative film crews whilst submitting his application for the National Film and Television School in the hopes of achieving what he once thought unattainable: a career in writing for blockbusters and gripping television.
In the end, however, he’d probably be happier for a few pints down the Waggon and to call the whole thing off!
