I am honest, hard working, punctual and polite. I find it easy to get along with other people.

I like to learn new skills, and aim to strive for perfection in my work.

I have picked up a varied amount of social and physical working skills over the last few years, which are mentioned in this cv.

If any employers are interested in what I have to offer their business or company please contact me via this site, where I will endeavour to reply as soon as possible.


My interests are playing football, and cricket. I started to play football when I was 6 and my first football team I played for was Nissan FC. I stopped when I was 8 and started to play cricket. The first cricket team I played for was Washington CC and I still play for them today.  At the age of 13 I started to play team football again for the Lambton Lions, I have played for them for 4 years.

In my spare time I like to go to the gym, and go out with friends and family. On a weekend during the football season I like to go to watch Sunderland play with friends. I enjoy going out for a meals with family. I also like to go out riding on my bike.
