Hi, I'm Brian.
I'm 56 years young and born and bred in Mackay, Qld. I have had a very eye opening life, to say the least, thus far.
I am a survivor of child sexual abuse and live with Type 3 Bi-polar Disorder, P.T.S.D., O.C.D., and Agoraphobia. I fight everyday to be the best person I can be!
I am a Hair Stylist and Barber and have created my own success with my busy salon, Brian Gerrard Hairdressing. I also enjoy playing the drums in a local rock band, 4 Shades of Grey.
None of this would have been possible if I had taken my own life 23 year's ago.
