When away from work, what do you enjoy doing?

My family and I enjoy exploring Dartmoor and the lovely beaches around Devon with our extremely energetic Spaniel and slightly more sedate Jack Russell –  it is pure coincidence that these outings tend to involve a refreshing drink and lunch at a traditional country pub!

Other interests include cooking, films and travelling.

What is your favourite book or movie?

On the basis you can’t beat Bond – Casino Royale.

Describe an interesting fact about yourself?

Living in South Africa for 3 years when I was younger sparked an interest in learning foreign languages – Afrikaans and a bit of Sotho were the first languages I learned followed by French, German and Spanish.  Italian is next on the list. 

When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?

A physiotherapist.
