When I was a teenager I had youthful exuberance and disability demons in abundance. Quite a weird combination. So much of me wanted to see the world and change it at the same time. However having Spinal Muscular Atrophy meant feeling it was all impossible for poor little me. Being able to drive is an […]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.

During the recent UK bank holiday weekend, I’ve been experiencing a very new Spanish cultural education. I knew from my time in Asturias that they also celebrated this weekend. I didn’t know that L’Ametlla de Mar would be so different. Our first awareness of the ‘MangaTuna’ festival was when we stopped in the tourist information […]Read more
Unless you don’t follow me on social media or you live in a cave, you’ll know that I’m staying in Spain for a few weeks. Beyond the sun, sea, culture, language and everything else I love about this country; it has also marked some very significant aspects of my life. We all know my ‘triumph […]Read more

To visit an uncharted territory and experience new things, I honestly think enriches us in so many ways. Whilst some people find excuses not to venture far (whether disabled or not), others seek adrenaline and greater personal growth. Whilst we’re all different and entitled to our individual preferences; here’s my top tips for disabled travellers […]Read more
Being a disabled person can be so exhausting. Even just to get out of bed we have to prove the case for necessary funding, equipment, facilities (accessible housing) and manage a team of people. All before breakfast! By lunchtime we hear how government policy is regressing. The ILF closure and Parliamentary apathy on the ‘Social […]Read more
