Interests

I do have other interests aside from digital!

Sport - I played university and London league hockey for many years. Spencer club is a special place. I love skiing and long distance running, although I've let those interests slip a bit recently.

MUFC (through good times and bad with my Dad). World travel. Enjoying food, wine and fun times with friends and family. I'm a qualified Les Mills Bodypump Instructor leading cover and regular classes in gyms across London.
