In the Spring of 2018 I achieved my lifelong ambition of becoming a qualified skydiver. I enjoy running and get tremendous satisfaction from raising money for various charities by taking part in full/half marathons and treks. I lead a team every summer at the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge. I enjoy different cuisines and love cooking and spending time with my family including two daughters.
