About Me


Didn't realise I had one until I read this


Talking about myself. I've been involved in different things since I left university.

I've travelled extensively, to more than 53 countries.
I saw a ghost once.
I stayed in some of the best hotels all in the world.
I went round New Zealand on a Harley Davidson. I've been round the Grand Canyon in a helicopter.
I bungee jumped off the Eiffel Tower.
I've slept rough on the streets of London.
There may be more, but that's all I can think of at the moment.


Stay strong.
