Last week I played the lottery. Not the one where you pay a quid and maybe win millions. It’s the one where you go on holiday with a disability.

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.

Ever since I was aware of having my disability called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (known as SMA), I understood that the messages didn’t go from my brain to all of my muscles. Even though I could feel everything, I just couldn’t stimulate the muscles to move much or at all. I also understood that it wasn’t […]Read more
