I have also always taken great pride in my achievements both in and out of work. Learning new skills and becoming famliar with new tools has always been a passion of mine (as well as seeing Saints beat Pompey 4-0 away).

Interests

I enjoy travelling both up and down the country every other weekend for the football.

I have been a Season Ticket holder at Southampton Football Club for over 8 years now and have only missed a handful of away games. At the end of the 2018/19 season I was invited to Staplewood (Southampton FC's training ground) to meet Ralph Hasenhüttl, the manager. This was a reward for attending every away game of the season, something I was very proud of!

Not only do I love watching football, I also love playing it, whether that is 5 aside or just a kick about with friends. I also love going to the gym before work, I enjoy both cardio and weight based workouts.

Not so much now, but when I was younger I used to do alot of competition swimming. I began swimming at the age of just 3. This was something I took great pride in and was always determined to come out on top!


Achievements

Most notably, appearing in the Daily Echo when I was five for swimming a mile.
