I've been living and working in Spain for just over 3 years now. I enjoy to ski, wake board, play cricket and I have an unhealthy passion for football, and unfortunately Manchester United. I enjoy reading, learning and writing about almost all sports, as well as taking a keen interest in international politics. 

I studied Education and used to be a teacher, before studying a Masters in Comms and Marketing and moving away from the classroom. I left England when I was 22 and have since lived in numerous countries; namely Nicaragua, Peru, Argentina and Vietnam. Vegetarian. I like dogs and discovering new music.
