About Me

Alternative career choice: I would have become an Air Force pilot had I not had a fear of flying!

Who would play me in a movie of my life: it would have to be me. It would be my only claim to fame and an opportunity to mix with Hollywood’s finest.

Favourite interests: I very much enjoy reading about the Middle East and am currently working on a thesis which will bring about peace for generations to come.
