Each day when I cut hair on the streets I meet amazing people with amazing stories. Stories that most people never get to see or hear. Stories that can warm my heart, and break it at the same time.
Phil’s energy floored me – talk about life experience! From being the Australian National Bird Champion back in the 90’s (who knew that was a thing!) to using and selling drugs, and then finding out later in life that he has had a manic bipolar disorder his whole life and that it was masked from his drug abuse. We got along like a house on fire and I was so fascinated with how far he has come in life!
