About Me

During my undergraduate degree at University College London, I spent a year in Provence, France, studying French law. This fueled my love of foreign travel and appreciation of good food and wine.

I like experiencing different cultures and cuisines – preferably in warm climates!

I also enjoy gardening, tennis and playing the sax.
