Hobbies and Interests

Sport plays a big role in my leisure time.  I am currently in training for the triathlon season.  I train at my local gym on a daily basis and have developed a great passion for boxing and cycling.  I am also learning to play the drums.

I am very committed to my family and have a close knit circle of friends who I enjoy spending time with. I am an avid reader and enjoy music and hiking.  I have been fortunate to travel extensively in Europe and the USA and have also visited India, Thailand, Africa and Australia.  In 2016 and 2017 I travelled to Malawi as part of Mission Rabies and the WVS to participate in a neutering and vaccination programme.
