I am a keen DIY enthusiast and am currently completing the refurbishment of my house. I also practice martial arts and enjoy doing the weekly 5k Park Run to keep fit. When the weather permits, I also like to go hiking and rock climbing with my proudest achievement scaling the overhang on Cwm Silyn, in Wales.
