Athletic, modest, loyal
What’s the best thing about Manchester?
That there’s always something / somewhere new to discover.
What has been your biggest disappointment?
Having to cut my extended travels short when the pandemic started as I was having an amazing time in Mexico. Having said that, it did lead to other things that I wouldn’t change for a second.
How do you relax?
I try to do a little yoga every day, even if just for 20 minutes. I also love cooking whilst listening to music and watching reality TV.
The soundtrack to your life. Which song?
If you could go back in time, where would you go?

Roast Dinner or Fish ‘n’ Chips?
