I never thought that I would ever be saying this, but I am hosting my first ever workshop in July!
That old friend of mine, imposter syndrome, has been present most my life. After all there is always someone better, more talented and more qualified than you. But that’s the thing, I wasn’t giving myself enough credit for everything I had achieved. All the clients I’ve worked for. The knowledge I’ve gained over a career that’s now in it’s 9th year (yikes!)

The Oscars goes live this weekend on the 28th, and all I keep thinking is that I sincerely hope Leo get's one because I truly feel it's long overdue.
Most of my favourite films are ones he's starred in; Shutter Island, The Great Gatsby, Inception...I mean come on, Titanic. But, last month myself and Avnish went to see The Revenant and that then booted all of these off the top spot. Everything in it captivated me.
