Yes, I'm feeling very grateful to be able to do what I do, and am very aware it is only possible through present and historic support via family, community, education and generous sponsors.
All of the present work I can and am doing, is all because of people who've cared enough to be generous and hard working themselves.
I am feeling thrilled to move forward in a way to give back better and to move forward more effectively.
Now, thank you for visiting and for your interest.
