I was born with cerebral palsy, which is a form of brain damage that affects the signals from my brain to my muscles and makes balance and coordination more difficult than usual.

I attended Percy Hedley School up until the age of 9 when I went into mainstream education at Southlands Middle School in Cramlington. I went on to complete GCSE's and A-levels at Blyth Ridley High School before gaining a 2-1 honours degree in Business Information Systems from Northumbria University.miller

I am a professional athlete, competing in field athletics primarily the F32 Club Throw, which is equivalent to the Javelin for my disability. I have competed in Discus and Shot Putt in the past. I have represented Great Britain for over 15 years, competing in 5 Paralympic Games, 5 World Championships and 4 European Championships - so far winning 26 international medals.

In 1996 I became Britain's youngest ever track & field Olympic and Paralympic gold medallist at the Atlanta Paralympics. I went on to be undefeated in all competitions until 2005 - 9 years in total. I won gold at both Sydney and Athens Paralympics, then agonisingly missed out on a gold at the Beijing Paralympics due to a classification error, coming away with silver. At the London 2012 Paralympics I was male athletics team captain but underperformed due to a serious hip injury and finished 11th. I now have a new hip and am training for the 2016 Rio Paralympics.

I am also a website developer, working part-time at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Gateshead. I write and do motivational speaking. I'm secretary of NUDSA - Newcastle United Disabled Supporters Association.

I am a Managing Director at SMILE Through Sport - A Community Interest Company that's aims are to inspire, educate and promote enjoyment of disability sport.
