Outside of work I am a serial hobby collector – predominantly relating toward sport. I used to compete nationally at dressage before I gave up horses in 2018 shortly before I moved to university. I moved from the south of England to Edinburgh in 2022. This was as I love the abundance of outdoor space you have access to up here, alongside the benefits of living within a capital city.

I have also been to a number of wonderful places including Cambodia, Uganda, and a lot of Europe. I have many more plans to keep travelling and am always interested in discovering how to travel in a sustainable/ less impactful manner.
