I have a passion for independent travel, both as part of my degree subject and outside it. I've travelled
throughout Britain and Europe on fieldwork; I also spent summer 1996 travelling round Mexico, and teaching
in a slum area in Mexico City.
I'm a committed Christian. As part of this, I am actively involved in my local church, and have also for several
years been on the youth-work team on a summer holiday mission working with children in North Wales
A keen photographer, my favourite medium is black and white film, allowing me to develop and print my
own work.
I enjoy most outdoor pursuits, especially hiking & climbing anywhere mountainous and rocky: my passion for
geology extends beyond my degree!

Music is one of my main interests, from singing, playing piano or clarinet in various orchestras and groups, to
listening to almost anything, especially jazz
I love creative design: from making own greetings cards, to producing designs for tablecloths, wall hangings,
bed spreads & clothes
