Hobbies and Interests

I'm a huge fan of watching and playing sports: especially boxing, football, rugby, cricket, and mixed martial arts. When I'm not working, playing sports, or in the gym; I can be found looking after my two-year-old and 3 month old daughters - although, obviously not in that order!
