Story

Over the next 2 years, I am going to raise £10,000 and further awareness for the charity Combat Stress - the UK's leading charity for veterans mental health.

I have had my own challenges regarding my mental health which has significantly impacted my career and personal life; it is something I still battle with on a daily basis…I would therefore love to do as much as I can to support other people on their personal journeys.

In order to achieve this I’ve set myself the goal of becoming a DJ and performing at a major UK festival within 2 years. The reality….I’m a complete novice who has never touched a set of decks.

Because music has played such an important part in keeping my mind and emotions stable, it was the obvious choice as the theme for my challenge - people jumping around in muddy fields, without any cares or concerns, wearing whatever they like without judgement….it is the place where I can be me!

At 34, you might be thinking that I’m probably too old and inexperienced to be able to break into the music industry. This is something I’ve dreamed of doing since I was a teenager and I want to inspire anyone suffering from problems with their mental health that anything is possible when you find your purpose.

I would love you to follow me on this journey, where I will document every step, my successes and certainly all the setbacks I will face. If you can support in any way to help achieve this goal of £10,000 for charity, or you would like to share your own journey, please get in touch!
