James Light carefully selected several interesting people for his online movie What’s your Story. The only prerequisite being that everybody featured had chosen to make a big change in their life, and to pursue a life of their dreams.
I was very glad to spend the day filming with James and in that time we were able to do a full interview plus get footage of weightlifting, my Wednesday night Easton handstand class, and my Tumbling lesson at Axis Gymnastics centre, in Bristol.
I do different activities every day of the week and so if he had come a day earlier he would have found me doing Ballet at The Big Act, Yoga at Yogasara, and Trampoline at Axis!
James was very interested in the fact that I had made a big shift in my life 4 years earlier when all my hair fell out (total alopecia), I’d also got drawn into being a freedom activist promoting libertarian ideas, I had also gone bankrupt as a result of a string of tax problems and poor financial decisions whilst running my previous business which sold online guitar lessons.
After the worst was behind me, I decided to simplify my life and focus more on simple pelasures. I began attending circus acrobatic classes at Circomedia, and going to the gym regularly. Over a period of 3 years I became a successful handstand teacher and am pursuing a range of movement skills including ballet, contemporary, street dance, gymnastics, yoga, pole dance, powerlifting, bodybuilding, all in Bristol.
The documentary will feature my thoughts about my own journey and life.
