Outside of work

I'm usually out walking my dog Chewie with my partner Mia, around the Quarry in Shrewsbury, or somewhere else around Shropshire. I'm a keen gamer, with a leaning towards single player open world adventure games, I'm currently playing my way through Elden Ring on PS5. As well as occasionally winning Mario Kart tournaments in Shrewsbury.

I love to travel, and have been lucky enough to visit 17 countries — I always have a list of at least 3 places I want to see next. I'm a big football fan, supporting (my local team) Crystal Palace. I used to play a lot before university, but since then I mostly stick to playing 5-a-side when I can. When I lived in Manchester, I loved exploring the city on my fixie. But, I'm currently between bikes though (if you don't count my Peloton).
