As a child we were plagued by paranormal activity around the home, from the usual creaky doors and flickering lights to ghostly strangers that would appear in my bedroom. Yes there were times when it was very scary but I don't recall ever feeling threatened by all the activity.
I guess it was always destined that I would work as a spirit medium, however I have had a great many other experiences in my life that I feel compliment my present day work.
I have travelled round many parts of the world, from North and South America, where I learnt to speak Spanish, Europe and New Zealand where I live for a while. It is there where I was in my early 20's that my mediumship really came to life after meeting many shamanic healers and psychics whilst there.
Outside of my mediumship, Iam an accomplished horse rider and trainer and had been riding horses since the age of 8. As well a being an animal handler for film and television.
I have trained and worked in tv production as well as the film industry at Pinewood studios and worked as an assistant director in theatre productions.
I also at one time ran a video film company with a friend and was one of the few people to be able to film senior members of our own Royal family. I guess one of my best employments was working for a music producer. I lived as part of his family so I would regularly come into contact with many celebrities, Royalty as well as meeting a few spies and CIA agents!!! I have experienced incredible wealth (not mine I would add) from sitting in a hotel in St. Moritz surrounded by more money than you could imagine to meeting one of the oldest street gangs in Jamaica, men with scares and bullets wounds all over their bodies.
However diverse my life has been, I truly believe that it has put me in a better place now and has genuinely helped me understand the true meaning of life itself.
