During a successful career as a Mechanical and Computer Software Engineer, I became an Herbalife Independent Distributor in 1987 and was introduced to the Personal Wellness and Personal Development industries by Herbalife founder Mark Hughes, the “Billion Dollar Man” - Larry Thompson and America’s foremost business philosopher - Jim Rohn. In 2008 I first heard John Maxwell at a Success Training seminar in the USA and started reading his books.

During my youth I was an English national standard competitive swimmer representing my home town of Bury St Edmunds and also a Suffolk County swimmer. In my late teens and continuing throughout my life I have studied various forms of martial arts including Karate, Thai Chi and Qi Gong.

In 2007 I achieved one of my lifelong goals by becoming only the 873rd person in history to swim The English Channel. The swim was filmed and included in the Discovery Channel documentaryHuman Body - Pushing The Limits” - Episode 2 | Strength which was nominated for an Emmy Award at the 2008 - 60th Anniversary Emmy Awards. In 2008 I swum the channel again becoming only the 84th person in history to swim it twice. In the same year, I became the oldest known person to represent Great Britain at Open Water Swimming when I competed in two FINA World Cup Open Water Grand Prix swims in Serbia and Mexico respectively. Then in 2010, I completed my third crossing of the English Channel as part of a six person international relay team.

In 2008 my wife Beccy and I started Body and Mind Studio International Ltd, providing personalised Naturopathic Nutrition advice and coaching, as well as Motivational Speaking based on setting and achieving your goals - whatever they may be. I am the CEO of Body and Mind Studio International Ltd, a Naturopathic Health Coach, a Master of Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s Institute of Human Individuality, and since August 2020, a Certified John Maxwell Team Member.

During the 2020-2021 global COVID pandemic, I spent some of my time working with Kyle Wilson, my first mentor Jim Rohn’s 18 year business partner. With Kyle and other renowned thought leaders from around the world, I co-authored a book called Bringing Value, Solving Problems and Leaving a Legacywhich became an International #1 Amazon Bestseller in 28 categories around the world. On September 24, 2021, working with Internationally renowned presenter, producer and publisher Roy Smoothe, I became an International #1 Amazon Bestselling Music Artist in five categories.

Since my early childhood, I have tried to help others less fortunate that myself and philanthropy is now part of my DNA. I believe that the secret to living is giving and have raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity over the years. From swimming to France, living and trekking on the Great Wall of China with torn ankle ligaments, performing a Fire Walk to name but a few things, I try to help as many people as possible. My current charities are St. Nicholas’ Hospice Care in Bury St Edmunds and the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF - Casa Herbalife), a global non-profit foundation dedicated to improving the lives of children around the world by helping provide access to good nutrition. EVERY Herbalife sale we make, a donation is made to the HNF.

My mission in life is to pass on my experience and knowledge to as many people as possible, across the world to enable them achieve their personal wellness and business/sporting goals.
