About Me

Welcome to my online home. 

An about page that’s not written in the 3rd person as if they are Dwayne The Rock Johnson and one that’s not going to bore you to death. 

Whilst these pages may come off egotistical the goal of mine is to simply give you a recap of my journey so far and if it resonates with you, let’s connect. The world needs more collaboration. 

Home is where the heart is and while that is Wales (just check out our flag, it’s a bloody dragon 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿  )  my second home has always been online. 

It’s been the bodybuilding.com forum where I learned about health, fitness, and building websites (Big-up the misc section!). 

Even rugby subreddits and slack communities. 

Being part of these online communities took a young 16-year old boy from a coalmine village in West Wales to running multi-million-pound companies. I’m not saying this out of ego or to show off but you have to know the truth of my journey otherwise why would I bother with this site? 

Some may think “Wow, how do you leave a small village and live in London and do X,Y,Z?”. Well, I believe growing up in a council estate and being in the working class (and especially Welsh) gives you a superpower. 

Most see it as starting from behind, but once you get past school you realise it’s not about the upbringing that makes you, it’s about what you do with your own equipment. 

You can either let the working class, council estate, small village mindset consume and become you via bitterness and hate or use it as fuel. The grit you develop cannot be fathomed or understood by the upper classes. Sure some may have it but you’ve been born with the blessing of hardship that they simply cannot experience. That’s an upper hand. 

What I do

I’m the founder of Rugby Warfare – a rugby clothing brand that has served over 100,000 people but more importantly creates high-quality products for a market I’ve always been passionate about. We hire a few people. 

I’m the co-founder and CEO of Trtle.com, a health and fitness company that’s helped over 60,000 women to date.

I’m also a Pn1 Certified Nutrition & Behaviour coach. 

The people I’ve met and the skills I’ve developed are far more important than any title or financial achievement though. Money can buy many experiences but not genuine authentic ones that have developed through passion, hard work, and consistency. 

The skills and knowledge I’ve gained in building businesses have opened countless doors.  

One example is when I moved to San Francisco, I created a touch rugby tournament between Facebook, Google, Apple & Tesla!

 

All employees who took part are pictured above. 

I was meeting the most talented people in the world while having fun playing rugby. 

I managed to combine my love for rugby, business, and Silicon Valley (mainly Apple & Steve Jobs). Which I think is cool as f***. 

*Tesla won if you wanted to know! 

You can watch a preview of the tournament below and the full video of how it unfolded here. 

New Zealand All Blacks players have messaged me wanting some items from my brand. Crazy!

I’m in business with Ryan Libbey & Louise Thompson (off Made in Chelsea), a combination that never would have happened if I didn’t start Rugby Warfare. 

We’ve transformed thousands of lives through health and fitness. 

You can only connect the dots looking backward. 

And here we are today. 

  • I run two companies
  • Have my own daily wisdom podcast
  • Run a live Cohort-Based-Course on Marketing (waitlist here for next cohort)
  • Fighting for Welsh Independence as I believe it’s the only option Wales has left to secure a solid future for the younger generations.

This website will combine my love for business, philosophy, fitness & Wales. 

I read and apply what I read a lot and I’m lucky to have 2 companies to test marketing strategies out with near instantaneously. I move fast and learn fast.
