In the past I would have described myself as a storyteller, writer and podcaster, but that isn’t who I am. Those are a few of the roles that I like to take on. Who am I really?

A farmer’s son from Milton Keynes? A man who lives in a van? A lost soul in search of meaning?

I’ve definitely been all of those things. I’m someone who has spent many years trying to get my head around what this mad, bizarre, beautiful world is all about. I’m someone with a thirst to get to know myself and a desire to drink cups of tea with as many people as I can. I’m someone who likes to sit in fields. I’m someone who laughs and cries. I’m someone with a desire to get out into the world to really see how people, in all their wonderful diversity, makes sense of this thing we call life.  

I’m also a person who has struggled. In the summer of 2017 I decided to set out on a journey to better understand my own experiences with depression and anxiety. Since then I have been traveling around the country in my little red camper van collecting and sharing stories about how we deal with change and navigate the difficult bits that life throws our way, building my repertoire of stories and experiences along the way.
