I am an Electrical Engineer with shallow pockets but love of small trees and a passion for nature. I started my working career as a Chef as it satisfied my creative nature. After being diagnosed with MS my life seemed to fall apart around me and Bonsai gave me a focus. After deciding that the heat and long hours of the kitchen were not sustainable I spent a time in Africa immersed in nature. On return to th UK I spent a short period working as a groundsman for an arborist and became even more interested in nature and country crafts. This gave me time to regroup and retrain as an electrician and further to become an engineer. During my life I have grown and killed many trees and have maintained a very small collection until 2017. After finding youtube an amazing resource for information with the likes of Bjorn Bjornholm reignited even more passion for bonsai and the amazing moment that I discovered Ryan and the Mirai teams approach to teaching Bonsai I was hooked again to the point of obsession. I look forward to continuing to learn and join the amazing Mirai Bonsai Family. Thanks Everyone!
