About Me

  • I am a keen martial artist, currently working towards my black belt in karate. I also practice boxing and judo.
  • I enjoy long walks with my dogs (or are they walking me?).


  • My alternative career choice: I have always had a passion for animation and would have pursued a career in this field if I had not been inspired to become a solicitor.
