As written by him...

"I have a great sense of humour which can be quite dark at times.

I m also known to be quite quiet when meeting people but once I get to know people, I become louder and chattier!!

I also get more confident once I have had I drink but I only occasionally get drunk.

I love music and I like many different genres, artists and bands

which leads to me having quite random playlists!!

I mostly listen to Juice World, Ariana Grande, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Panic at The Disco, Bring Me The horizon, Machine Gun Kelly, Trippie Redd, Metallica

and many more. "
