A little about me,
I’ve lived all of my life between the Isle Of Man and Lincoln, with family in both places. Growing up I was always absolutely in love with extreme sports (skateboarding mainly) and music (punk rock, metal, hardcore) and spent every spare hour skating & playing in bands. When I reached my mid teens, I got involved with the wrong crowd and ended up abandoning all my friends to hang out and take drugs with this new “cool” crowd , which inevitably got me into trouble , a lot of trouble. It wasn’t until a very good friend of mine from childhood, Callum, had to decided he couldn’t fight his demons anymore and took his own life. This was the first time i had ever lost anybody like this, and actually forced to wake up, remember who I was and what meant the most to me. I reunited with my friends, and have spent every day appreciating what I have in life. Since Callum, I have lost many more dear friends to suicide, and drugs, and have actively tried to have a more positive influence on the people around me whilst balancing my own mental health, my landscaping business, my partner and my 2 kids.
I feel that with the skills I’ve gained over the years (Fitness qualifications, Landscaping, Agriculture and many more) I can help people gain excellent mental health through fitness & exercise, work based skills and overall knowledge based on my own experiences. I’m a very commited member of any team and have always been a shoulder to lean on for many of my friends, family & colleagues.
