Some fun facts…
I prefer coffee over tea, but always drink peppermint tea before heading to bed.
Roger Federer is my favourite tennis player EVER. He is the GOAT. No question. I even wrote a blog post about him.
I can pretty much recite the script of ‘Fawlty Towers’. The episode with Mrs Richards is my favourite.
And did I mention I’m working on my first novel?
I’m also super-easy to work with, meet all deadlines, and have lots of happy clients.
