Rash began his career in broadcasting over twenty years ago as a radio DJ. After finding it all too terrifying, he focused on his passion for audio, radio frequency engineering and digital electronics. He has worked in local and National radio behind the scenes helping to make radio happen. Over the years he has designed and built dozens of radio stations and has always pushed the technological envelope while looking for new and better ways to make, deliver and make use of technology to democratise the broadcasting world by finding elegant (and sometimes not so elegant!) engineering solutions to circumvent the barriers to entry.
After first going online in 1994 Rash realised the potential of the Internet as a disruptive multimedia platform and that it would rapidly evolve from a haven for hackers and academics, to a mass-medium. He was one of the pioneers of Internet radio in the UK - and later went on to design and deploy what is now one of the UK's premier Content Delivery Networks for broadcasting.
Now broadcasting via the Internet has come of age, Rash is proactive in exploring how the continuing convergence can be leveraged to marry the wireless world with the IP world as (he insists) that it's a match made in heaven. Rash still enjoys occasionally DJing around town to keep his ear in, and works as a Senior Broadcast Specialist in the Radio & TV team at Ofcom.
