After starring in Byker Grove and studying Economics and Anthropology at Cambridge, Caspar began his adult career as a screenwriter. Then, at the age of 25, he made a life-changing decision and became a professional poker player in Las Vegas. Now retired as a poker player, he retains many of the lessons he learnt and applies them directly to business.
