About Me

My hobbies: I love everything about coffee, specifically espresso. I think its fair to say I’ve gone down the coffee rabbit hole. 

My alternative career choice: If I had not pursued a career in law, I would have been a chef, restaurateur, published author. I still hope to be published one day.

My favourite meal: Biriyani
