Outside of work...
If this was a few years back it would be all about football but when you rupture your achilles it is probably best to stick with golf. When I am not hacking up the golf course I will always attempt to watch the beloved Arsenal and try and attempt to sneak a couple of games in when I am back in the UK (as painful as it sometimes is watching).
I am also natural thinker and do'er, always trying to challenge and push the boundaries in everything I do.
