I was born in the mining valleys of South Wales, and grew up surrounded by tall green mountains and all of the colourful people who lived on, below and around them. My nurture was at the hands of spectacular storytelling, and I developed a passion for the tales of real life at a very young age. My fondest memories always take me back to dark, cosy evenings, sat around an open coal fire, listening to war time stories and tales of times gone by. I was blessed with wonderful fuel that set a fire under my desire to write, record and share the extraordinary but very ordinary tales of life. I am a product of those that raised me and loved me without condition and of the very beautiful, poetic and inspiring country I was born into.
I am passionate about freedom, art, music, words and stories and I find these things wherever I go, but more importantly these things always find me.
I am a cisgender man who goes by the pronouns he/him. I am an active ally of the whole LGBTQ+ community to which I belong. I have a strong belief that clothes have no gender and that all human beings deserve true freedom of expression. I look up to Harvey Milk, Sylvia Rivera, Martha P Johnson and Lisa Power MBE, These people changed the world. and I believe that we can all change the world around us by simply living our truth out loud and without apology. We have the power to ensure that the voice of tolerance gets louder.
I am spiritual with my own independent pathway to what I call the Love Energy or God. I have great respect for the many religions that I have studied over the years but my spiritual journey has taken me down a different road, a road that makes sense to me and a road that brings me peace.
