Fun Facts

Year Started at USF:  2015

Hometown:  Walsall, England

  • As an undergraduate I played soccer for 4 years at Lynn University
  • I am a bit of a coffee snob. Some of my favorites are Rival Bros. (Philadelphia), Heart (Portland), Four Barrel and Sightglass. (SF Coffee Map)
  • I have an eclectic taste in music and I’m always looking for new tunes and new artists.  I also play the guitar in my spare time but my singing needs a lot of work.
  • I love reading books about creative design and creative expression, I believe everyone can be creative; they just need a little bit of creative confidence.
  • I have been fortunate enough to travel a lot and some of my favorite cities (other than San Francisco of course) are Cape Town, Istanbul and Kyoto.
  • When I am not at USF you will find me biking or running around the Bay Area. I enjoy being outdoors and I am very active – I feel it helps the mind, body and soul.
