Born and raised in 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

I was born and raised in a little Welsh Valley called, Rhonda Cynon Taff.

I was always interested in design but I had no idea what I was doing or what design was all about.

All I know is that I was pretty good at Photoshop and could write HTML and CSS back in my MySpace days.

I later moved to the 'big' city of Cardiff to study at University and stayed here ever since.

I am a bit of a travel bug 🌎✈️

Seeing the world is one of my favourite activities. When I'm not in Cardiff, I'm somewhere else in the world. I try my best to visit as many counties as I can as much as I can.

Some of my favourite places I've visited include The Grand Canyon, Disneyland, New York and Tokyo

I've also visited various countries within Europe. Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Hungary. The list goes on... but I'm not finished just yet.

I have so many plans for counties I would like to visit and making it a mission to ticket them all off the list.

This photo always makes me LOL! I can't speak Japanese, these guys couldn't speak English. But I was a single rider in Disneyland Tokyo and shared a ride with these guys on Splash Mountain.

They wanted me to jump into their photo so obviously I had to return the favour and snap the memory as well. This is why I love to travel it's fun communicating with people even though you don't speak the same language, There's always a way....

Hobbies

You can usually find me running around Bute Park. Running is something I love to do and push myself to run longer and faster.  

I've competed in a few races one being a Half Marathon that I've been meaning to do again sometime and maybe run a full marathon someday.

Other than that, I love to skateboard and go to a few girls-only events.  I have broken a few bones in the last year or so... maybe it's time to put that hobby to rest? But its sooo fun!

Why did I start my Youtube Channel?

I've always had a soft spot for YouTube and always wanted a channel. The only problem was I had no idea what I could do on my channel. Also I was super scared to try anything outside of my comfort zone.

Until one day I decided, f**k IT!

I've always believed that everyone should have the right to a FREE education and what better place to share my knowledge in UX design?

It was the perfect platform that was accessible by many and that it was something I had complete control over.

So I plucked up the courage and started my channel.
