A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I’m a man in my late 40’s living in Barry. I have two French bulldogs. They are very boisterous but loving pets.

15 years ago I was hit by a car whilst on holiday resulting in a life changing brain injury. Before this I was a commercial diver working abroad.

I tend to be forgetful and can come across as blunt but this isn’t intentional.

My interest range from gym to drawing.

·        The occasional shopping trip or out for a coffee
