I Don’t really consider myself a teacher but offer support and encouragement in YOUR journey of self-discovery.

I am married to Heidi and am a father to 2 boys, Kaine and Joe.

My hobbies include riding motorcycles and photography. I have travelled extensively throughout Europe, and particularly love riding in the mountains, the Alps, Pyrenees and the Picos. I love the perspective mountain scenery gives, and find it most inspiring.

Photography helps me to appreciate things as they are, the contrasts, light and shadows and the brilliance and subtleties of textures and colours. I find when immersed in capturing a scene or looking for a composition it allows me to escape my thinking and wakes me up.

I have been on the path to awakening spiritually for as long as I can remember, I was involved in Spiritualism for 15 years but grew increasingly interested in Buddhism until in 2018 I joined Shambhala Bristol of which I am still a member. I have studied intensively in the Hinayana & Mahayana Buddhist paths and have also attended some extensive vipassana meditation retreats, & now am a qualified meditation instructor.

I have now reached the point in my own development where I dearly wish to help others discover their own Inherent Basic Goodness, Your True Nature.
