My brother Jamie passed away in 2011 after a long battle with diabetes and its many complications. He was often hospitalised with mild health troubles and my family and I would drop what we were doing and visit.

Our local kids festival has was cancelled, leaving lots of families like mine home with their kidlets at a time when we’re all just a little bit more on edge. I love performing and hoped that by putting on this show, I could help entertain you and your kids for a moment and that we could all share a laugh or two.
I held this show at 10am on Sunday, March 15th on my my Facebook page, where you can now watch it in all its glory!

In the past I’ve had trouble differentiating between my career in technology and my passion for performing. But with the coming of my company, Cloud Innovation, I can finally keep my technobabble out of your face!
So enjoy the content I’ve already been able to source. And brace yourself. The onslaught that will be 2020 is just beginning.
