What Do I like Doing?
Surfing

Ever since I moved to Portugal at the age of 13 I have been a keen surfer. This sport has allowed me to travel the world and meet new people which is how I have ended up in Australia at this present time. 

Football

Like many Brits. I was raised on Football (soccer) when living in the UK. I casually play indoor football with work friends.

Gaming

Being a bit of nerd, I enjoy relaxing at night playing the PS4 with my friends from back home.
