About

My life has had many twists and turns, ups and downs, all of which I am truly thankful for. I battled with depression for most of my life but in 2008 things had got really bad for me, and I had to stop working.

After spending most of 2008 in hospital and with doctors I had decided that western medicine was not the answer for me. In 2009 I decided to take a journey to the the Amazon jungle, I lived with a Shipibo shaman and his family for a month, clearing my mind and participating in Ayahuasca ceremonies.

My perception of the world had changed forever.

In 2010 I was diagnosed with bi-polar, I took the decision not to suppress my feeling with western medicine and instead to simply follow what felt right, and to let go of all my fears.

I have now left the UK, I sold everything I own and Iím living in Cambodia. I am on a journey to find out who I am and what the world means to me.

I currently volunteer at an NGO in Cambodia called the Sao Sary Foundation Cambodia (www.ssfcambodia.org) I teach computer literacy and computer maintenance. If I can make a small difference to improve another humans life while trying to find my place in the world, then I will be happy.

My photography is simply about the way I see the world.
