“I love spending time with family and friends. I especially enjoy camping and outdoor activities with my young family. I also have a keen interest in classic films and am a big Godfather fan… well, the first two anyway! I have a background as an international martial arts competitor and personal empowerment coach and use my expertise on a voluntary basis to help capacity-build in the community by running programmes specifically targeted to engage and enrich the lives of traditionally ‘hard to reach groups’ such as young women and teenagers.”
