Self description

Male , 32

I am a recent graduate of the University of Nottingham. I am an excutive officer at the Students' Union in Nottingham working specifically as the Democracy & Coummincations Officer. Next year I will be working for the civil service as a fast streamer. I'm from Manchester originally and my family still live there. I have a girlfriend called Anika and we've been going out for two years.

Life experiences

Students' Unions

I've been working within a Students' Union in some respect or another for four years now. I know quite a lot about communicating with students and marketing for them.

Film making

I am very good at coming up with ideas to market ideas and I can do this with videos very well. I studied for two months at the New York Film Academy so I know the theory as well.


I used to work as theatre technician in Manchester and I've performed ever role from actor to director and stage manager to producer.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

Working in a students' union I have seen the direct benefit of passing something on and people flourish as a product of that. I have made a fair few mistakes in my time and I'd like to help people in learning from my experiences.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
