Welcome to the eight edition of Meet Your Maker. This week it’s the turn of Pentley Park in Hertfordshire, UK .
Your company or trading name
Tell us about where you’re from, what you do, how it all started and why you enjoy it.
I am from the UK, a county/state called Hertfordshire. My current career is in sales, business development and account managing but that just pays the bills and funds my future business. It literally started in 1992, where i was born and brought up on a road called Pentley Park, I have always wanted to own my own business and have gained knowledge through my 3 previous businesses. I have always loved creativity, photography, fashion, graffiti and even some nsfw photography! I got brought up by a single mum to always be a gentleman and have kindness for others, so had to incorporate that into any business i started. I put creativity, gentleman manners and products, fashion and business together and I got Pentley Park. So, I enjoy it because I plan to build the brand around everything I have ever enjoyed and hopefully other people will too.

A random fact about yourself that readers won’t learn anywhere else
I once won a playstation 4 from an english “lads magazine” for being so drunk and naked… the competition was called “mate in a state” (it was a full spread picture)
