I'm British by birth and hail from Yorkshire in the north of England, known to locals as God's Own County on account of its beautiful countryside. I was also fortunate to spend some of my formative years in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, where I became a dual citizen, and seeded a passion for nature and travelling.
Outside of work I unwind by playing the piano, running, hiking, gaming (lifelong Nintendo fanboy), and drinking the occasional beer or two with friends. Recently, I managed to survive white water rafting in Kuala Kubu Bharu (spending much of the experience underneath the raft). Though an utterly hopeless cook, I'm something of a foodie and love the cuisine of Southeast Asia. I unapologetically share my meals on Instagram.
