Skilly Skillz by stage name, is an Artistic Human Percussionist (Human Beatboxer), Mentor/ Community Project Coordinator - Beat This CIC / Social Entrepreneur and has performed to thousands of people all over the Nation.

Kieran has been on an incredible music journey over the last decade, gaining experience from performing, hosting, collaborating, organizing/ directing projects and has now dedicated his life to his family and career - teaching his knowledge to his community he has learned over the many years. After turning his life around from a life of bad surroundings, Skillz, single father of two aged 11 and 7 - recently left his role as a keyworker engaging and educating young people in care. Whilst working with challenging behaviour, Skillz gained the knowledge of the processes and protocols with local authority care orders and delivered extra support to ensure the young people received the best equal and diverse opportunities. Skillz would take the young people to his recourses and deliver professional workshops for free under his role as a keyworker. Since working with young people under a local authority order, skillz has supported and watched lives change for the better and continues to deliver personal development workshops. Whilst working in the day and supporting the next generation from the streets, to care - Skillz also cares for his 11 year old Daughter which is diagnosed with Tonic Epilepsy and uses his own life experiences to engages with all ages and additional needs. Skillz was diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome in 2013 and now encourages others to engage with music as a way to channel their energy into a positive state of mind when having ticks. Skilly Skillz is an active artist and continues to push the boundaries of the art form of beatboxing to connect with young people and challenging behaviour in Peterborough.

His stage presence and hosting has been described as being: a high energetic, "enthusiastic leader and entertainer, very comical and entertaining” (High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire 2011)

Vocalise Crew - Cross Keys Association -
Skilly Skillz continues to teach his talent to his community by working with many Schools in his local and surrounding area. Himself and his students Vocalize (funded by the High Sheriff Awards 2011 to 2014) performed for events such as the BITC awards, Volunteer Awards Peterborough, Green Back Yard Community projects, leading to performing for Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee 2012 and more. The project was aimed for young people that are deprived from the equal opportunities surrounding musical orientated projects. Since then, skills supported all the members through their education and encouraged personal development - visiting them on special occasions at their Schools ensuring they were on track. Now, the young members are not so young and have transformed into potential social entrepreneurs.
