CHARLIE HARRY FRANCIS
Charlie grew up on an ice cream farm in South Wales and has a long history of inventing weird and wonderful machines that go bing and bosh and blip. He set up Lick Me I'm Delicious in 2011 building the first nitro parlour in his living room, then he built the nitro buggy, then the edible mist orbs, then a corby trouser press toasty maker, floss whizzers, electric tea cups and all sorts of bits and pieces. He's happiest when holding a screwdriver and a fork.
Charlie has also worked on some TV shows, gives talks, makes soup in washing machines and likes to sleep under trees.
In years gone by, he has tried his hand at stand up comedy, river kayaking and springboard diving - yes, we want to see the video footage of that too.
Rhys joined Lick Me I'm Delicious as a casual ninja but quickly graduated into a full time member of the team. He now heads up the Operations Team and has an unhealthy obsession with spreadsheets. He can play every instrument under the sun and often talks about a long lost football club called Swansea City. No, we have no idea what that is either.
He is our main camera wielding dude and can photograph a sitting lemon meringue pie from 1000 feet. He heads up all our mini freelance ninjas, smashes events out like a rockstar and has a dairy allergy, which is particularly helpful working with ice cream and chocolate.
When not at work, you will find Rhys smashing balls around on a golf course and shouting things like 'fore' and 'bogey'.
Kitty once climbed up a chimney to look for Father Christmas. We're not sure if she found him or not.
She is originally from Dorset but enjoys the travelling life. She likes to go on the piste and her last job was as a snow ranger and ski rep in Alpe D'Huez in France. As well as the snow, she loves the sun, sea, sparkles and anything pink. She has a cooking diploma, which helps when she's baking cakes for the office.
Kitty is an Event Manager and you will probably see her running your event with a massive smile on her face. She can also put together an estimate in less than 3 minutes flat.
JUNIOR EVENT MANAGER
Hedvig flew directly into Lick Me I'm Delicious from Oxford Brookes University. She has confirmed that Harry Potter's owl was named after her and not the other way around. She has quite a lot of unhealthy obsessions including drinking super-size cups of coffee, driving vans with four wheels, and folding aprons neater than the Queen's laundry service.
Hedvig is originally from Norway where she owned a welder and had a licence to drive snow mobiles and boats. In the UK, she has completed a degree in Business & Marketing Management and wore her cap the wrong way round for the entire graduation ceremony. Don't tell anyone we said that.
Hedvig's favourite machine is the Nitro Ice Cream Pod and you'll see her running your event with the utmost precision.
JUNIOR EVENT MANAGER
Contrary to popular belief, Alanya was not born in rural Ireland, but a small Oxfordshire village where she still resides with her pet tortoise, Frankie and Lord Harold the golden lab.
Alanya loves nothing more than to drink prosecco by the gallon and sees herself as a chocolate brownie connoisseur. When not working, she likes to travel, gaze lovingly at beautiful cars and recite the entire script of Monsters Inc. Yes all of it. Yes even the sound effects. Yes.
When not drinking prosecco and scoffing brownies, Alanya spends her time going to self-help groups for her severe glitter addiction. She has been battling this addiction for many years and can usually be located by following the trail of glitter she leaves behind.
Alanya is one of our Junior Event Managers and is an absolute floss twirling, ice cream churning, mist swirling ninja.
Tom was recruited into Lick Me I'm Delicious based on his kick-ass skills as an Event Manager and not just based on his name, although that did help.
He has a stunning Dachshund called Dexter (that's a sausage dog to the non-crufts out there), drinks more tea than should be humanly possible and is also a trained chef, so any strange flavour requests (squid ink candyfloss anyone?) - Tom is your man.
Although originally from Somerset, Tom doesn't wear dungarees, speak in a West Country accent or talk incessantly about cider. We put this down to the fact that despite growing up in the country, he has NEVER driven a tractor.
Being the type of person who would lick a battery to find out what happens, Tom often comes up with clever solutions and ideas for machines. You'll see him at your event smashing out the details, crossing the T's and nailing the dots to the I's.
