I'm a self-starting sort of chap, currently residing in the countryside around Bristol in the UK with my wife Stephanie, and giant Maine Coon cat, Poppy.
I spent the first 18 years of my life in Nottingham. I enjoyed a very privileged schooling at Trent College Independent School.
Played county football, hockey and cricket for Notts teams. I also became the youngest boy in the UK to play consistently in a men's 1st XI for a regional premier league club, I was Caythorpe's wicket-keeper, at 13 I think.
After my A-levels I waved goodbye to Nottingham in order to pursue my cricket career more in the UCCE at Cardiff whilst getting to study languages.
After a year of early morning bleep tests, nutritional lectures and constant training, all the fun had been sucked out of cricket for me, and I decided to call it a day and focus on my studies.
I left Cardiff, the first undergrad to have graduated having taken on two brand new languages from scratch. But more importantly for me, I left Cardiff with my then future wife, Steph.
Steph and I went to live in Italy together for half a year and that's where we got engaged and where I started my first business.
Fast forward 9 more years to 2019 and I'm still happily married with my partner in crime, Steph. I'm still running my own businesses with my business partner Dan. I can now speak terrible French, OK Spanish, OK Italian and OK Portuguese (because Steph's half Brazilian and so I learned the lingo). I'm chasing the goal of being able to do a full Ironman triathlon and would love to get my golf handicap down to single figures.
Things I'm most grateful for in life are:
My loving family and wonderful friends.
Running water and getting to live in the UK where we are so fortunate to have so many things we take for granted on a daily basis.
Being my own boss and having the luxury of being able to work from wherever I want in the world.
My health. I'm so grateful to be able to do everything I do each day and enjoy life to the max.
