What aspect of your job do you find most rewarding? 

Working with great people. I find working in law firms exposes you to some really enthusiastic and smart people, which can be challenging at times, but allows me to get the best out of myself.


If you had an alternative career – what would be your fantasy job?  

I think it would be as a travel photographer. I really enjoy visiting other countries and capturing some of the amazing places I have been fortunate to visit.
