About Me!

I am an award winning barber, author, public speaker, global barber director and international educator – I started my career with Toni & Guy in 2002 learning  the discipline of structure, sectioning patterns, guides and scissor over comb. I taught myself barbering because of the love for men’s hair and alternative styles which required clipper work spending many hours of trial and error on my friends. 

In September 2015 I founded The Lions Barber Collective, which started as a group of international barbers raising awareness for suicide prevention. It has developed to become much more and now campaigns for the awareness of mental wellbeing and suicide prevention as well, believing that the barbershop is a great, safe place for men to talk, and through BarberTalk I hope to train hair professionals across the globe to Recognise, Ask, Listen and Help those in their chairs.
