My greatest fear is losing someone close to me.
My current state of mind is hopeful! I’m staying patient with my knee rehab (after requiring surgery following an injury playing for Old Belvedere). I’m making progress and looking forward to making more small steps in the right direction.
I am happiest when sharing a deep belly laugh with friends and family, or eating something delicious. Food is a major part of my life.
If I could add any element of talent I’d move away from sport. I’d love to possess some iota of musical talent.
If money was no object my occupation and hobby would be an artist and a photographer, at the same time.
Advice for a classroom of kids is: nothing will work unless you do.
Serena Williams is my sporting hero.
If I could listen to one song it would be Conor Walsh – The Front.
My favourite place on the planet is a sappy answer: Colorado and Barcelona narrowly miss out as I have to say a field near my house where I grew up. I learnt to drive there, played football with my brothers there every summer so loads of great memories.
