It’s been 3 weeks since we began the Accessible Tourism Roadtrip. So far we’ve had an amazing boatride to Santander, saw old friends in Aviles, made the local newspaper too, made the long drive to Barcelona, stayed in an amazing apartment at MICs Sant Jordi, and enjoyed endless fun in the Catalan capital. This weekend […]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.

Being a social model advocate I’ve spent a lot of time enjoying my own differences (like having SMA) and educating society to remove those disabling barriers. On the topic of empowering technologies I do use a hoist, electric bed and wheelchair as enabling devices. Otherwise I’m very dependent on people. More recently I have been […]Read more
My more epic roadtrips to Lithuania and going from John o Groats to Lands End were a while ago now. After a few weeks of battling bad health and fighting for disability services, it’s time to embark on a new challenge. This week I sailed from Plymouth to Santander for an Accessible Tourism conference in […]Read more
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

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
