“I became an animal welfare activist about a year ago. I have my own cat, who I adore, but I love all animals in general. I became a vegetarian too as I can’t say that I care for animals but then go around eating them. Nothing against the taste or health, but I couldn’t support it with my love for all creatures. So I help charities to market their causes; and even though I cannot go along to these places a lot, I give my financial and online support where I can.
Outside of my job I’m also in two music bands – the music always helps me to express my emotions, pain and anger about the world’s imperfections and the more people know me and my views the more they could possibly understand and start thinking in more compassionate direction.”

“I’m studying theatre; I want to be performing in West End, that’s the dream; or on a cruise maybe if West End doesn’t work out. I came to London so I could focus on this. But right now I’m working at All Saints to build up the money I’ll need, but it’s just for another six months until I go out into the big bad world.
I had a big career decision to make at 17. The other option was horse riding. I would have gone to the England tracks and travelled around the country taking part in races. I’d have been representing the country. Of course I loved doing it, but something in me always pushed me to acting. The stardom, the big stage feeling maybe, I’m not too sure. So finally I chose theatre, that was my real passion I feel, and so I’m working towards making this come true.”
“If you can wake up and just like yourself a little bit, then you have so much to live for.”
My own personal words:
Angus is an inspirational character to look out for, and one of the nicest people I’ve met. He hasn’t had the easiest life but 2016 marked the start of a real turnaround and he has big plans for 2017. Watch this space, we may hear from him again!
