About me

I'm a larger-than-life people person who loves doing magic tricks and making everyone around me laugh. I'm also a campaigner for people with a learning disability who deserve to be treated equally by health services, having been on my own cancer journey. There's a huge difference between caring for someone and supporting them to do things for themselves.

Myth to bust: People with a learning disability can't do things for themselves. I live in a house share with my mates and lead an independent life.
