After a period of rapid weight loss and other not so fun symptoms and being visiting A&E, I was diagnosed with severe ulcerative colitis in October last year.

Following attempts to get the inflammation down with drug treatment, I was left with the only option of surgery and to have the ileostomy. After 6 weeks in hospital I feel so much better and much happier with myself. Especially my weight loss which boosted my self confidence.

Currently unemployed (getting back into the swing of things) but looking for work as a graphic designer or level designer. I have a passion for music and feel the need to have something playing no matter what I'm doing. My taste is quite varied. I tend to find myself listening to a lot of classic rock and country, I do love some Cash.
