What did you want to be growing up?

The ultimate young boys dream, playing football for Old Trafford, Manchester United and scoring away goals at Anfield, Liverpool in front of the Kop end.

What made you get into Barbering?

I wanted to better my life and find myself a career not a job. Barbering was the one that stuck out for me.

Hard one, I love the tapered neck and messy top but then I love a skin fade with a crop!

A most enjoyable aspect of your job?

Learning every single day and being apart of something a great.

Would you recommend this career choice, and if so, do you have any advice for aspiring Barbers?

100% every day is different. It’s hard work but you need to be prepared to knuckle down and take it at your own pace. With a great team behind you, you'll crack the code.

A regular clientele, becoming a master at my profession and just living the barber life!

If you could cut anyone's hair, alive or dead, who would it be?

It has to be Conor McGregor , the boss!
