Personal Info

Languages spoken: 


I am originally from Skipton in North Yorkshire. I moved to Glasgow to study at Glasgow University and also for work. I moved to London in 2007, and have lived here since.


I have a handful of qualifications, including a BSc, MSc, four A-levels (3As,1B) and ten GCSEs. I continue to push my expertise in all areas, not just in my line of work, but also at home (I recently installed a kitchen, and built a shed from scratch).
