{activities & interests}
I have a passion for the latest trends in consumer technology and am a self-confessed tech-head. But my interests don't end there. I’m also a keen traveller, my biggest expedition being a year spent exploring Australia and Thailand. I attend a local gym 3-4 times a week and am a keen cyclist. I’m also interested in property renovation, having redesigned two flats and installed all the latest gadgetry both inside and out. I’m an avid reader of contemporary fiction and a fan of TV documentaries and science programmes.
