In a short sentence, tell us what you do in your current role?

To grow and develop broker accounts whilst underwriting profitable business.

Did you choose the insurance profession, or did it choose you?

Insurance chose me! My journey started at a software house and I never looked back.

What is something that people are obsessed with, but you just don’t get?

Gin! Lovely, but definitely overrated.

What is your biggest frustration with modern technology?

I love modern technology and how much it has changed lives, but it is also frustrating how much we now rely on it.

What do you do when you’re not working?

Outside of work you will find me at the gym, shopping or eating!

What was the last book you read, or movie/box set you watched?

The last book I read was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.

Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide what music to listen to?

Ooo good question...I am a massive fan of all genres of music so it's hard to choose one to be honest I would probably pick a random playlist.

Past or present, which five guests would you invite to your dream dinner party?

Jesus Christ, Oprah, My Mum, Princess Diana and Tyler Perry

What is on your bucket list?

Learn to ski, travel, whitewater rafting and own property abroad (to actually go abroad on holiday would be a great start!)
