What do you like to do outside work?

I am a fan of both American football and baseball. In my spare time, I’m either watching games or reading books on the history of the sports. In the summer months (and when weather permits), I play for a local softball team and that competes in Cardiff’s softball league.

I am a keen traveller, with particular focus on visiting America, Japan and the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.

Having spent time working part time in a local cinema during my years in University, I have developed a particular interest in film.

I also regularly volunteer at fund-raising events in support of local children’s charities.
