Reclaiming a love of movement changed my life & I hope to change others. And it feels good and is a lot of fun!
Who am I?
Films & Photography
I make films and shoot photos of people, places and projects that I like.
Facial Capture Engineer
I put funny hats on people for video games for Vault 501 in Santa Monica and OMUk in London.
Starting life from the simplicity and beauty of the South West of England, I’ve always travelled and had a passion for understanding people, places and their projects.
Through my Ph.D. research, award winning short films amassing over 16 million views online, published book ‘Breaking the Jump’, consultations for the United Nations, international academic and artistic presentations, workshops and personal coaching, I help people overcome obstacles and rediscover their potential by finding a love of, and meaning in movement.
I’m an artist, anthropologist and teacher at heart. 15 years ago I unknowingly started my own journey of reclaiming and re-discovering the meaning of movement when I started to learn Parkour as part of my practise based Ph.D combining documentary filmmaking and the inner meanings and excellence of parkour. I was 35 at the time and had been sat down for years. I was scared of everything. I’ve taken baby steps all the way and am now stronger and more able than I ever dreamed possible. I’m a life long learner and continue to embrace a growth mindset by challenging my habits and fears, moving outside, staying creative and being brave. There is joy in simplicity. I continued my natural movement education by learning systems such as MovNat and Animal Flow that provided a more holistic approach to the inter-connection of movement, mindset, health and well being. I’m proof that you can always learn and progress and you are never too old or it’s too late. I am currently an ambassador for Merrell.
Strength, health, happiness and adventure is waiting outside our front door if we know where to look and are supported and informed along the way. I believe that we can age positively by investing time in how we move, what communities we connect with, challenging our self-limiting beliefs, spending time in nature, becoming more minimalist and taking control of our health. Identity is not fixed and you have the power to change your life regardless of your goals and the obstacles in your path.
I have had many teachers whose stories and teachings have changed my life. It is an honour to share and pass on their knowledge. We can all benefit from the inner excellence of parkour. Find meaning in your life and live it well. I’m here to help people move and feel better. I want to inspire people to take action. I believe none of us are less special than anyone else and we all have the potential for positive change. Through my See&Do free content, paid online training programs and personal coaching I want to make a difference. Become empowered by being happier, healthier and stronger to have the freedom to live the life you want. Whether you’ve always been active, have never moved much or are looking to regain a sense of athletisiscm from previous years, I’m here to help you move forward step by step so you feel free to live your life well and in a meaningful way. Reach your highest potential for health and be the best version of you as you age. I’m not some holier than thou ‘my body is a temple’ or elite mover, I’m someone with fears, doubts and sometimes not so great days who finds refuge in chocolate and ice-cream. However, I show up at my best when helping others and I want to share and show you the lessons and people who have helped shaped me. Thank you for taking an interest and reading this, it’s a bit long but I hope you get more of an idea of who I am and what I’m about.
Change takes courage, creativity and continuity. Rome wasn’t built in a day…
We are all able and can benefit from connecting our mind and body and moving more.
