This is me!


I’m a chartered RIBA Architect who fell in love with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts. So now as well as designing contemporary buildings, I present combat sports for Europes largest promotions across a variety of media platforms. I also promote the benefits of a sports lifestyle for personal improvement.

Combat sports have helped me immensely. Through training and competition, I’ve not only lost over 130lbs but cultivated a lifestyle based on positivity, reflection and self-improvement.

It wasn’t always smooth sailing. Everything worth doing has its challenges and this journey was certainly no exception.

I have written this piece to try and provide some useful information and reassurance to others who may be looking to lose some weight, get healthier and change themselves for the better.
