PASSIONS

Apart from splitting work between Total therapy and the MOD, I spend most of my time with my family and young son, enjoying the excitement that comes with him growing up. Personally, I enjoy all sports, especially rugby union, cycling and disability sports (such as The Invictus Games) but my main passion is cricket, with which I play in the local Dorset league.
