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
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.

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
Since I’ve been getting some winter sun in Fuerteventura the past fortnight, I’ve chewed my way through 3 books. I can sometimes go months without reading, and then suddenly a thirst for knowledge (alongside the right environment, such as a holiday) kicks in. Then boom, off I go! I’ve read about financial sustainability, technological innovation, […]Read more
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. A colleague of mine, Ivor Ambrose from the European Network for Accessible Tourism, quoted the expert accessible traveller Scott Rains as saying “all accessible travel is […]Read more
Following a tough end to the year, I saw 2015 in with antibiotics. That said, the medicine did shift that nasty virus I had very effectively. Plus our New Years Eve murder mystery night, where I was the reverend, was great fun. I didn’t commit the crime by the way. It’s been all go since […]Read more
The end of 2014 was tricky, and it appears that ‘firefighting’ problems can be the ultimate creativity killer! Then Christmas seemed to just come and go again, and it’s now time to welcome in another New Year. Despite having another winters cough I’m ready, with your assistance, for some big new challenges in 2015. Whilst […]Read more
These last couple of months have been really tough. It feels like the carefree happiness of the past years all somehow caught up with me. I mean, I’m always ‘on it’ when it comes to life’s administrative tasks and firefighting problems. However, various problems have landed in my lap in one blast, and it has […]Read more
