There seems to be such a void between politics, the media and everyday people. All I seem to read, watch and hear is immigrants and disabled people draining our society. Yet the recession, debt and issues we currently face began in financial sectors. Sectors that remain propped up by our government. A little economics 101. […]Read more
My blog aims to inspire, inform and change the world around disability issues, by sharing my individual experiences and personal journey. I talk about family, friends, love of music, struggles as a Tottenham Hotspurs fan, my world travels and crazy challenges. I also share hard learned advice on overcoming lifes barriers.
My personal achievements show the world what is possible, but please remember that every individual makes their own journey and achieves in their own ways.
My community projects, media work, world travels and businesses create conversations for people to learn, share, support and progress together. Please take a look below at my blog and subscribe here
My videos show things in a new, interesting and exciting way. They often cover more thrilling occurrences; such as my world travels, flying a plane, or interviewing someone else of interest to you. The same ethos applies – inspire, inform and change.
People have said how the videos get across my positive attitude to life, silly sense of humour and useful approaches to overcoming the everyday barriers of life.

- Community Projects
I run my own digital community projects for you - disabled people, friends/family/professionals to disabled people, and anyone generally interested. They aim to bring people together; to share, learn and empower each other.
The best solutions come from disabled people themselves. However the more society and government understands the problems we face, and knows their own specific actions towards a solution; social change will occur faster.

I don’t really remember when I first knew that I was disabled. I’ve heard stories of how I didn’t move like other toddlers. Then I remember being at school in my wheelchair. That first moment of knowing I was ‘different’ just doesn’t stand out. This is of course testament to my mum and dad. To […]Read more

Peaks and Troughs. Ebb and Flow. However much I strive for consistency, it always seems to evade me. Partly because I guess ‘that’s life’. Partly because I seem to like to mix things up! I tend to regularly kick off new challenges. From finishing 2014 tired, living back home, and struggling with a deterioration in […]Read more
There’s a well told story in our family about the time my mum hit me around the head with a loaf of bread. Not the type of thing you’d expect to read, especially following this title! There’s another story where she poured a cup of water over me in bed. But before you call Social […]Read more
Today I went off the beaten track for a walk. A strange sentence to read, and indeed to write, from a wheelchair user. It’s a shame that language is sometimes used to cause offence. The general result is non-disabled people falling over themselves, so to not speak out of turn. While disabled people avoid certain […]Read more
Today is #WorldRareGenesDay and thanks to my esteemed friends Sam Mildon, Tori Elliott and Lauren West (plus a few others); I am to share 5 things you don’t know about me. Running a blog means I’ve spilled the beans already, so here’s some general thoughts for everyone on this important awareness raising day: 1) I […]Read more
As of 8pm on Saturday night we were finishing our Valentines dinner. I had packed my bags to stay at my mums for the week. Meanwhile Kasia was all set for a week of skiing with her dad in Austria. For no apparent reason I was struck with the idea of joining her. Following a […]Read more
