What can colleagues - and friends - expect when they are around you?

They can expect care, support and of course..  a laugh! I think anyone who know's me would say I go above and beyond for the people & things I care about.

What are your guiding principles at work?

Listen, support, don't cut corners and always try and enjoy what you are doing.

What motivates you at work and in life?

I have always strived for success, whether it's work, life, sports - I always want to win! My family are also a big motivator for me.

What is the most unexpected thing you ever did?

Moving to London from a small town in Ireland with no plan other than to create a successful career & life - 6 months later I was signing up for a boxing fight in front of 2000 people & working in a sector I had not dreamed of working in before!
