Why the dreadlocks? 
“ Basically I had wanted dreads from a very young age. My mom told me that at age eight or nine I wanted them. I started growing them when I was around twenty one.
For me, they represent my outlook as a member of society and hopefully create some form of positivity amongst people I meet.
They have, however, also had the averse effect but that remains the problem of the people with the negativity.”
What is your favourite film of all time? 
“The Big Lebowski!”

“I listen to a lot of music, mainly Reggae and I collect vinyl. My children form a big part of that as they are with me whenever I am not working.”
Do you enjoy working with The Farm Film? 
Of course!
Please share a fond memory from a job you have done with us.
