I am inspired by Ian because I know he has been through much, yet chooses to help others, with a smile. He is an unassuming man, but a great light in the world.
He is brave, too, as he will be doing a wing walk for charity. Apart from standing on a moving plane which is scary enough, he hates heights (!!!!) and had to diet to the nth degree in order to be allowed to do it!!! Respect!!!! ill keep you all informed as to how he does. Hopefully we will have some pictures too!
Tell everyone a bit about you:
I am married to Jo for 14 years, and I have 1 son and 1 step son (who lives in America).
My passion is photography and it is an excellent vehicle for helping others, which is one of the things I like to do.
I support the Samaritans and they have really opened my eyes a lot.
I am challenge driven, and I run a Commercial Refurbishment company.
Your vision for the future?
I would like to allay my demons, to continue to be happy, and make others happy, while enjoying photography and other creative projects, and do more of that which makes me happy.
How did you get where you are today?
By determination. I fell down, and got straight back up!
I appreciate manners, being there for others, and the principles of freemasonry and their charity ethic.
