A simple man born into a complex world I have spent my 48 years searching for my purpose, trying to define my value, and educate myself through an open mind and a giving heart. I have lived in different countries - done many different jobs (from shop floor to the boardroom and everything inbetween), all to discover more about myself and my place in the world. There's not much I haven't seen or done, both good and bad, ethical and amoral, and not many people that I haven't "been" in my search for identity, tribe and belonging; And so I want to pass on as much as I have learned to anyone who needs to know that they're not alone, who needs an empathetic ear and a supportive shoulder. My skills and characteristics are based in communication - verbal and non, art, language, and design. I'm a natural critic who combines logic with rationale and from a different perspective to the mainstream. I'm convinced that mental health is the at the very heart of the world's problems and that we have been using the wrong terms to define the ills of our society; its why I am passionate about talking about it. I teach, I coach, I mentor but above all I listen; So please get in touch.... We still have much to learn about ourselves from one another.
