My own sporting background
My background is in Netball (A little bit like basketball for those international people who may not have heard of netball). I was lucky enough to represent my state but unfortunately my teenage aspirations to play for Australia had to be put to rest when I realised that the growth spurt I had in my early teens putting me head and shoulders above my team mates was a one off and unfortunately I got well and truly overtaken!
My favourite sporting moment or heroes

My favourite foods
I love seafood and thanks to a few European visits recently, anything that resembles cheese, dark bread and good coffee.
