I've lived in London for a couple of years now after graduating and starting work at an investment management company. Throughout school I wanted to be a doctor; two weeks into biology A-level (and several hours into discussing the wonder of a cow's digestive system), I realised a life of science wasn't for me. I went for a wander away from the classroom and bumped into a friend who had a free lesson. I asked which subject it was that gave free's on a Tuesday afternoon and my love of economics was born. A degree in the dismal science hasn't dampened my enthusiasm and I count myself lucky to have found a job utilising the more applied aspects of the subject.
Outside of work, my spare time is mostly spent being pretty active. Sport has always been a big part of my life and I hope it will continue to be. Looking for social sport in London, I joined a couple of recreational leagues and now play softball and touch rugby. I also play tennis and try to get out for a round of golf most weekends (although I'm somewhat of a fair weather golfer so my discovery of Top golf- hitting at targets from a heated range- has been a welcome one).
My mom is American (hence the spelling of mom) so I tend to be back and forth to the US 2-3 times a year to visit family. I like to travel and explore new places but tend to go for slightly unusual destinations. Most recently I spent some time in Tanzania living with a family out there and travelled to Alaska for a small boat adventure cruise which was great.I've got a significant bucket list of places I'd like to go to but there's never enough time!
