Hi my name is Ian Culpin, im 25, live on the suffolk/essex boarder.
I am a carpenter making handmade bespoke kitchens and furniture love my job been doing it for 8 years. i have recently moved out my parents house into my own flat. my hobbies mainly include football which i play 3 nights a week plus sunday league for my local team which i play in goal. i have a pet snake a Burmese python but dont worry she is dog tame, very friendly (securely locked away ;) ) weekends i spend either doing private carpentry jobs or down the pub with my friends most of the time till early sunday morning!
why am i here on this site? i was born deaf in my left ear but had perfect hearing in my right but last year i got poleaxed during football by accident, and it made me loose majority of hearing in my right. I hear well enough with hearingaid, and lead a normal life, of course with some added challenges that you are probably familiar with. we get delt our hand of cards in life so we have to play with them the best we can and get on with life right? i have lots of friends and family who are great but i dont know any 1 who is deaf so what im looking for its to make a few new friends, (maybe more) to share experiences and share understanding of what its like to be deaf. people of all ages and hearing loss :) im a friendly and patient guy so dont be shy :) find me on facebook because id rather not have to pay for this
