My blog aims to inspire, inform and change the world around disability issues. By starting with my personal experiences and sharing my individual progress; it begins the conversation. I discuss my family, friends, love of music, struggles as a Tottenham Hotspurs Football Club fan, my world travels and crazy challenges. I also work as an online facilitator for disabled people; covering social care and benefits to travel and relationships. This is to understand other people’s experiences, share, learn, support and progress together. My personal achievements show what is possible, but every individual should achieve in their own way.

When words cannot describe something, what can one do? I say grab the flipcam and film it! My videos show things in a new, interesting and exciting way. They are often from more thrilling occurrences such as my world travels, flying a plane myself, or interviewing someone else of interest to you. The same ethos applies – inform, inspire, and change. People have commented the videos get across my positive attitude to life, silly sense of humour and in explaining my useful approaches to overcoming lifes barriers. Checkout the latest video now!

When I am not blogging or socialising I run my own projects on disability issues. The projects are for you - disabled people, friends, family, professionals and for anyone generally interested. They are to bring people together. To share, learn and empower our community. The best solutions come from disabled people themselves, but the more society understands the problems, sees the solutions and know their personal actions; social change can occur faster.
