Mike Erskine

I'm a sports mad 29 year old, living in sunny Swansea with my beautiful wife, Jess, and simply gorgeous daughter, Phoebe Haf.

I like to think of my life since meeting Jess when I was 22 at Swansea Uni as a Gavin & Stacey rollercoaster but in a good way!

The similarities to start with are just endless... Not only am I a massive Spurs fan like Gavin but I met my wife in Wales whilst studying Media & PR at Swansea University. I tried to take her back across the infamous Severn bridge to my home of Fleet, Hampshire (not quite Essex!) but after two years working for top tech PR agency Berkeley PR the pull of Swansea, family and the fab Gower coastline was too strong and we returned.

I haven't looked back since; working for two of the biggest PR agencies in South Wales MGB & Quadrant, getting married and having a beautiful daughter.

And the spooky thing is I have now gone full circle and have returned to Swansea University to work - where I was offered a fantatsic opportunity to work as Communications Coordinator on a £6million ESF funded project called Technocamps, which gets young people in Wales excited about Computer Science. I also have a secondary role as online editor of ITWales - a bi-monthly online magazine featuring exclusive interviews, features and news from the IT/tech industry in Wales.

Gavin & Stacey tedious links: 1. I have a best mate who supports West Ham 2. My wife has a job in Barry and drives past the famous street on a daily basis and 3. My Mum was born in Essex!
