    Profile Summary

I am ambitious, passionate and committed in all I do and this is apparent in my professionalism, communication with others and well-rounded interpersonal skills. I also like to think that I am very approachable.

    Personal Interests

    I am passionate about learning from cultures different to my own, visiting new environments and meeting unfamiliar people. An important lesson learned has been that I have gained significant respect for others and their differing opinions – a strong starting point for successful relationships, I believe.

    I also enjoy regular running (½ marathon, StraMilano), rugby, swimming and golf. I cycle almost everywhere – in 2007, I completed a trip from London to Edinburgh (650km) in five days to raise funds for the National Epilepsy Society. I am also a keen musician, playing the piano, trumpet and guitar in my spare time.
