My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Mental health and suicide prevention

In early 2021 my big cousin, Seamus, took his own life. This was a great shock to all of my family. A unexpected wave of emotions and multiple questions beginning with 'why'.

Having battled my own way through mental health in the past, I came across meditation during a period, it instantly soothed my inner conflict and gave me a new inspiration and energy towards my day-to-day life. I set off on exploring more of meditation and in 2019 became a fully qualified teacher.

I have been fortunate enough to teach 100s of students all around the world, most of who are seeking meditation to help with their own inner conflict. Teaching them sparked the same inspiration and motivation among themselves, as it did with me.


Being a meditation teacher, 90% of my student base are women. Meditation still has so much false stereotype towards it, especially within men.

Having been a male who worked on building sites, played football, and travelled around the world; it’s very clear to me that men can use meditation as a life tool to help them greatly.



My biggest regret is that I never got the chance to teach Seamus. He was interested, yet he always pulled away from learning in the fear of the classic stereotype towards meditation among men.



My motivation, as a Movember Ambassador, is to change the narrative and show men that meditation isn’t a stereotypical ‘hippy woo woo’ fad; but actually a life tool that calms the nervous system, quietens the inner conflict, and helps you find fulfilment in the subtle aspects of life.
