I am a writer, video blogger, and podcaster. I also co-host a weekly sports show on local FM radio. Although this is technically considered ‘work’, I consider it all as one big hobby.
The majority of the content I produce is football related and most of that is about Liverpool Football Club. I was a shareholder until a forced takeover by George Gillett and Tom Hicks in 2007. Both men invited me to Dallas, USA and Montreal, Canada at the time and to be fair, they looked after me very well. It all seemed very exciting at the time, but as all Liverpool supporters now know, their ownership was disastrous. Thankfully that is now history.
In my spare time I enjoy playing on XBOX Live with my family and friends on titles such as PUBG, not that I’m very good! I enjoy the cinema, documentaries and travel.
I’m a UK Call-in Time volunteer for Age UK which involves me offering weekly support and friendship to pensioners in the UK who may be lonely or just in need of a friend.
I’m currently following a Keto / Low Carb lifestyle and have lost around 8 stone (112 pounds) so far.
I have 2 dogs, Francis and Zoe, both of whom were rescued from the local animal shelter. I’m not a cat lover really but I do happen to have a couple of cats. Lucky, was my late mother’s cat, and Luna was desperately in need of a home after she was abandoned as a kitten. Me being me, AKA a soft git, I agreed to adopt her.
I have a son (21) and a daughter (27) plus a grandson who is 3. They are my everything.
I deplore racism and the ‘woke’ generation. Despite being a Labour party member since school until a few years ago, I would say my views lean more towards the right today. I feel like I’ve been pushed in that direction by the loony lefties (this means people on the extreme left and not just people on the left, there is a difference!).
As far as I’m concerned, life is too short to be bitter or miserable so I try to fill my life with plenty of banter and fun. I do push the envelope at times so if you’re easily offended, it’s probably best you don’t follow my content 😉
If you follow my work or life on social media, you probably either love me or hate me. Either is fine with me. But for the record, I don’t have a problem with anyone or have any negative vibes about anyone who dislikes me, including those who have tried to make my life difficult at times. If you’re a hater or stalker, that’s cool, you need to deal with your emotions and attachment in ways that work for you. Me, however, I’d still buy you a beer and tell you to enjoy life and to focus on the things that make you happy, instead. I think that makes me the better person #OneLove
