When and where did you first realise you wanted to be a barber/men’s hairdresser?  "After a few years of working in a hair salon, I realised I was enjoying cutting/styling men’s hair so decided to make the transition into the barbering world."

Who is your ultimate hair icon? "Mmmmm, I don’t really have one although I do love Brad Pitt’s hair in once upon a time in Hollywood." 

Who is the coolest person you've ever met? "I met the Queen mum once but that’s not cool so I’d say it’s gotta be Liam Gallagher."

If you could be featured in a magazine which one would it be and why?  "I would say Rolling Stone magazine, once your in there you know you’ve made it!" 

What has the greatest influence over your haircuts? "Balance and manageability for the client, I think it’s really important that the client can achieve the same look easily at home."

Tell us about the best gig you've ever been to? "That’s a tough one, probably for a spectacle I would say Muse and for energy on stage I would say Biffy Clyro those guys tear the stage up."

If you could invite 5 people to a dinner party dead or alive who would it be and why? "Johnny Cash, Liam Gallagher, Oliver Reed, Ozzy Osbourne (younger version) and Hunter S Thompson. Because that dinner party wouldn’t end for a few days if you know what I mean.." 

What's the best thing about being a barber/men's hairdresser? "The clients, the diversity in hairstyles, the chat and the vibe of a barber shop. Can’t beat it!" 

Tell us about your personal style... "White or black t-shirts are a staple with a bit of denim and basically anything Carhartt matched with a hat so nothing crazy"

Which one garment from your wardrobe could you not do without?  "Probably my Clark’s x Carhartt wallabees. They are so comfy and look good with most things"

What's your favourite film of all time? "Fear and loathing in Las Vegas"
