I’d like to travel to:

New Zealand is top on my list. I want to zorb and zipline on what has been described as one of the most beautiful places on earth.

When you were 8 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A marine biologist. I was obsessed with dolphins, swimming and the ocean.

Best advice received:

Worry less about what people think of you and worry more about what you think of yourself.

If I ruled the universe:

Please don’t make me, but if I did, money wouldn’t exist and there would be encouragement to work as a community to help each other out and fix some of the toughest problems faced.

Downtime: how do you relax?

Hiking and Camping. Time with dogs.
