About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finishing my final year of Politics, Philosophy and Economics and then working at Glastonbury festival for two months.... then who knows where I'll be?!

ABOUT ME

I'm not 'from' anywhere

I was born in Bristol, England and then after 3 months I moved to New York, New Jersey, Texas, Arkansas, Florida and wound up in Georgia. After eight years in Georgia, we escaped the millennium and moved to Manchester, UK.

At 16 i went to my first festival, Glastonbury, and bloomed into the happy man i am today

A brief spell of non-hogkinsons lymphoma (cancer) in 2006 made me appreciate life to a level i never did before. I took only positivity from that experience and I'm happy to talk about it if you or someone you love is going through it! Every day is a something I might have missed out, so life is good

Lived in Manchester since 2007, studying politics, philosophy and economics whilst entertaining myself and others in festival and club circuits. I do kids parties, I travel alot, like meeting new people and trying new things and just enjoy being happy.

I've now given up Manchester life to travel across Thailand and then finish my degree in Australia until next summer, then, who knows?

PHILOSOPHY

you can like or dislike, it's your choice...

so why so serious?

the world is a beautiful place, see as much as you can and have as much fun as possible whilst bringing all the happiness and beauty you can to it during the process

always remember that you can either change something or you can't. If you can't, get over it
