What I do differently:

Focus on listening and understanding challenges in order to effectively resolve root issues and mitigate impact.

What keeps me busy at the weekend:

I love to be outdoors with family and friends either exploring the local parks or barbequing in the garden (whatever the weather!). I try to get away for snowboarding and surf trips as often as possible. I also enjoy playing guitar and love nothing more than an impromptu jam with my two year old and four year old.

Asian fusion & sushi

Hashi in Raynes Park for amazing sushi
Wagamamas for quick and delicious Asian fusion

Beer and wine…in any order
