Hobbies:

I am currently playing for a local Sunday League football team, and play tennis whenever possible. I am an avid golfer, and play with a local golf association, playing different courses around Essex and the surrounding areas once a month. I currently play off a handicap of 18, although this is not official.

I am passionate about writing, and enjoy writing for my personal blog. I also am developing ideas for a novel, which I have been working on for around a year and a half.

I love spending my relaxation time reading fiction, mostly crime and thriller fiction from the likes of Ian Fleming and Jeff Lindsay. I consider myself to be a very sociable and welcoming person, who loves to spend time with friends and meeting new people.

I spent the summer at a summer camp in America that caters for kids with and without disabilities. I was the sports program leader, which challenged my abilities to create and run unique activities that everyone could participate in. After camp I spent three weeks travelling around the east coast of America, where I visited Atlanta, Washington DC, Niagara Falls, Boston and New York, amongst other places. I would love to travel more in the future, or even have the opportunity to work abroad long term.
