About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Take it easy but take it.

ABOUT ME

I run a DIY punk record label with my friends called The Audacious Art Experiment and organise gigs in Sheffield, UK. When i need to earn money i do support and outreach work with adults with learning disabilities. I love getting out and about and going on missions, walking, cycling, running and rolling. Seeing what there is to see, enjoying life and getting stuff done.

PHILOSOPHY

I like to live day to day whilst experiencing as much as possible, never planning too far ahead or getting down about things i didn't do, but always up for something new. I want to be active in the world and help people who need it, as well as preserving the environment and the animals that depend on it. I believe that everyday, you should give yourself a present.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have no academic credentials but i talk a good game and love sharing the things i do think i know about. I can teach you how to make stunning veggie food and how to build a cracking bonfire. I have good general knowledge and can offer what i've learnt about music, film and history. I can also teach you how to organise a good gig or how to release a record. I've been told i tell a good story.
