About Me

My hobbies: I perform on viola with the London Phoenix Orchestra, and enjoy cycling, swimming and playing racket sports.

My alternative career choice: If I had not pursued a career in law, I …… would have become a concert pianist, having been playing since the age of four and continuing to give solo performances in parallel with my legal career.
