My name is Daniel Blyden. At 24 years old I am privileged to be one of the few remaining 80s babies who still can still qualify as a young person (in the 16-24 category), so I decided to make the most of it and get involved in this exciting project – Birmingham 2022.
I would describe myself as a futurist with a keen interest in the creative arts and self-expression. In my day job I work as a digital marketer in higher education and when I’m not doing that, I am spending time thinking about and planning what I will be doing in the near and distant future. I love to discover, curate and share my favourite things on the Internet, plan and manage events, find new web series to watch on youtube and new music to listen to on spotify. I am also a saxophonist (alto) and play I in two orchestras.
