Born in London to Franco/Indian and British (Irish/Scots/English/Norwegian) parents!!

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Spend time with my family, read, knit, cook, try and keep in touch with all my old friends.
What advice would you give to anyone that would like to get into the broadcasting world?
Do something else first. The most important thing in broadcasting is being able to relate to people, so they want to tell your their story. I think a bit of life experience is essential for that.
A big thanks to Sarah for taking part.
