JUST HAVE A GO
By the comments n messages i get on youtube and the things people ask me everyone seems to think i'm some some sort of mechanic/engineer person but in reality i'm just a plumber. The things i make are made with tools that proper engineers would laugh at but i'm proof you don't need an expensive lathe and huge welder to create something amazing. What you do need though is a place to do stuff and the right people to help ask when needed and also someone to tell you you will fail as that drives you on abit more. As far as a workspace i have a good workshop at home but its not always been like that as when i lived at me parents my dad would not let me in the big shed we had there and it wasn't until he died that i could really make stuff properly. It was quiet mad as i had to do everything in my bed room at one point i even had a lathe in there which i bought of ebay for £70 and it was the oldest mucky thing ever which resulted in oil being sprayed up the wall at one point so if you have kids for god sake let them in the shed or at least help them.
So the boring stuff i'm 32 and live in stamford lincolnshire where i was born (local boi) i left school at 16 and went straight into plumbing and stayed there till last june after that i was full time doing gadget Geeks for Sky. Up and till march this year i hadn't broke a bone but have twisted ankles an the worst was tearing my ACL tendon at King of Concrete BMX jam when was 18. BMX was my main interest as a youth and still now really although i don't ride much anymore. I got quiet flash at flatland and did win a comp but its the videoing that came with the BMXing that lead to me making videos and getting in to that side of things. Then when YouTube came about it gave me away of getting an audience and my videos soon became popular which all helped in getting me on telly.
