About Me


What motivates me??????

A challenge, giving it a go!

I was about 9 or 10 years old when I tried my first challenge.  I thought I could fly and was going to test my theory.  I climbed onto the 16-foot roof of my father’s shed with a sheet, tied to my ankles and wrists.  With no hesitation I jumped off, confident that I was able to fly.  I gave it a good go, but it didn’t work.  Luckily my father hadn’t mowed for 6 months or more so I landed on a big pile of grass, nothing was broken except the theory that I could fly.  Now a days, there is a lot more planning and I consider the consequences before I ‘give it a go’.

My life experiences are my motivation.  Throughout my childhood I suffered many incidents that no child should endure including invasive abuse I received in the Navy as a young teenage lad.  (Read more about my story).

This does not define me as a person.  This motivates me as a person.

I once read that the world needs more inspirational stories and I hope that following my adventures provides just that.  A story that will provide hope to others and show that the image of the ‘abused’ is not a whole life wrecked.
