On an adventure with Sonny (my dog and the official office dog) finding new places to walk and take photos, or socialising with friends.
Tell us something we’d never guess about you!?
I once worked on a citrus farm, where I learnt to drive tractors and planted 13,000 orange trees in two days. I also love to travel and have visited 27 countries in total so far…India being a highlight, seeing and experiencing the mesmerising Taj Mahal!
