Founder & Director
I started this company because I wanted to inspire people. I want to inspire them to do whatever they want and absolutely smash their goals.
My background is Engineering. I went to university, got a job and did everything that I was supposed to do. I had a good salary and all the things that you’d expect. But I wasn’t happy. What I was doing wasn’t fulfilling and I knew there had to be more out there.
After some time away I found my path and started Vir Original.
The message is clear and simple. To inspire people to do what they want, to be great at it and to ultimately change the world. You won’t reach your full potential being somewhere you don’t want to be. So this brand is to inspire you to dig deep, follow your dreams and smash those big scary goals. Whatever they may be.
I believe you are incredible, and you can be the best at what you do. It might take work, effort and time, but you will achieve what you want. It takes guts to go out and follow your dreams. I created this brand to help inspire you on your way as proof that you can do what you want.
Similar to Mike, and like a majority of people out there, I followed the unwritten rules of life. After studying Performing Arts at Kent University, I channelled my creative energies into stand up comedy. My passion lies in making others happy and reminding them that the world isn't all doom and gloom. From here I used my creative flare and optimised people skills to work in sales for a fulfilment company (ironic, right?!).
Apparently I do this so well that I got nominated for Young Business Development Professional of the Year; though I didn't win I was highly commended. Nothing makes me happier than being able to provide others with not only exactly what they want but what they need. I thrive off the enjoyment and happiness of others, which is why Vir Original peaked my interest with their similar philosophy.
Vir Original materialises everything I value and hold dear, namely quality and inspiration. To be the best you can be - you deserve the best. Vir Original encourages you to break the unwritten rules, throw away the handbook of life and start your own story, your own journey, and be the ultimate version of yourself. This is why our belief is to inspire greatness.
