Born in Stourbridge in the West Midlands I had a happy but pretty average childhood for a kid growing up in the eighties. My favourite place to be was outside but if I was ever inside I loved to be creative, especially with art and later on playing guitar and music.On leaving school I went to art college to study 3D design and although I enjoyed the course, as with many teens I was easily distracted and became easily derailed. I soon began to lose my way and eventually dropped out of art college early.
