Since leaving the military in 2006, Neil kinda stuck to what he knew best and was involved in both covert Intelligence Collection and low-profile/covert, Close Protection operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Sri Lanka. Teaming up with a former member of the Portuguese Special Branch, he organised, planned and conducted covert Intelligence Gathering operations in Sri Lanka, against the LTTE over a 3 year period, on behalf of a Western Government body. Their collaborative Intelligence Reports were used in the subsequent UN Dossier addressing “War Crimes and Human Rights Violations” submitted to the Sri Lankan Government in 2012.

Neil then went to work for the US Government in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, on the infamous OP LEGACY programme and spent 5 years, planning and conducting HUMINT operations with the NDS and Afghan Intelligence, in support of US Army Units such as 101st Airborne, 82nd Airborne and 10th Mountain Division, providing crucial “Live” Human Intelligence, in support of on-going Military operations in the Zhari, Maiwand, Panjwai and Arghandab Districts, of Kandahar Province.

He set up Go Noisy with his partner and Co-Owner, Tsarina Youhnovska, herself a trained and qualified Close Protection and Surveillance Operative, in 2018, in order to take what he had learned, working as an undercover soldier, and use that experience, both good and bad, with which to pass on his Firearms, tactics and non-permissive environment knowledge, to likeminded people.

Neil’s focus and approach to training is to replicate his experiences on the Range, either by planning and conducting complex “urban” Live Firing Exercises or by creating realistic “Case Study” Scenario Training, using Role Playing “characters” and adding in other external, environmental factors.

Neil’s passion is in providing realistic and functional training that provides people with “options”. He has little time for carefully choreographed drills, preferring to allow Scenarios and Live Firing Exercises to take their natural course and for students to “figure it out” by themselves.

Neil has a wealth of experience working in numerous countries, cities and villages around the world in non-permissive and downright nasty, operational environments, under intense pressure and with an ever present risk of capture.

He has many years of Instructional experience and was an Infantry Tactics Instructor at the British Army’s Infantry Training Centre, ITC Wales (Brecon). Neil has delivered various types of specialised training such as Close Protection, Surveillance, HUMINT, Firearms, Hostile Environment and Hostage Survival, to foreign Police Forces, Government bodies, organisations and individuals, around the world.

He also, currently, delivers Scenario Based Advisory Training for senior NATO Staff Officers at JFTC NATO, Poland as part of their pre-deployment training to Afghanistan and Iraq.

In 2015, Neil embarked on an unsupported and solo, Walk Across America, to raise awareness of PTSD amongst American and British Soldiers and Veterans. When he reached Pennsylvania, he suffered serious and incapacitating injuries, including the on-set of sepsis and a strangulated Hernia and was admitted to Hospital, until he was able to return to the UK, for further medical treatment and surgery. It is something that he intends to go back and do again.

Neil has also appeared on the Channel 4 Series, “Hunted” and was an advisor on the US TV Series “The Feed”, which was released in 2019. He has also choreographed and delivered bespoke Firearms training for members of the Film and TV Industry.
