What’s the best bit about your job?

My fantastic team and the high calibre of work we’re involved in both locally and across the country. My days are busy and full of excitement.

Do you have a secret talent?

I have played bass guitar for the last 15+ years and I also play electric guitar and piano, but to a much lower standard!

If you weren’t a solicitor, what would your ideal job be?

Professional musician or record executive.

What motto would you say you live and work by?

Work hard and be kind.

If you could turn the clock back, what advice would you give to your 18-year-old self?

Just try your best and the rest will follow. Try not to worry, or over-think things and enjoy your youth!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Malaysia. I love their culture and, of course, the Malay cuisine.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

If not something musical, you can usually find me doing a bit of DIY.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

‘Always make the right noises’. It’s always stuck with me.
