Tell us a bit about your background

Im originally from the UK, I came to Australia in 2011 at the end of a backpacking trip -  I had $100 when I arrived and was homeless for the first three weeks of being here. Fast forward 8 years and I’m now an Australian Citizen and work as a Consultant Engineer.

Describe a typical work day for you?

I’ll usually get up nice and early, catch up on the English football news with a cup of tea, and then head to the gym. After a days work I’m usually editing content, at football training, or binging on another TV show!

Where do you get your content inspiration?

@kevinelezaj @philipdeml @adrianhollinger and of course @davidbeckham

Do you have any tips for influencers looking to market themselves on social media?

Just start, be honest and original, and see where you end up. We all make mistakes, that’s why they put rubbers on the end of pencils!

What’s your favourite – Instagram or Snapchat?

Instagram 🙌🏻

We love following your journey, what can we expect to see from you over the next year?

A few exciting trips are planned for this year - so expect some interesting content from India, Singapore, and of course Australia 🇦🇺
