What age did you start playing games and what’s the first game you remember playing?
Maybe 4 or 5 – sonic on the Sega megadrive.
What made you decide to pursue a role in Esports? 

I’ve always enjoyed gaming and Im really excited about the business and legal challenges that are being encountered as Esports gets bigger. As I go through my career in the legal profession Esports is an industry that I could be passionate about.

What’s your all time favourite game?
Big question, probably has to be time-splitters two. I don’t play it now but if it was in front of me again I would play for hours
What is a typical day like for you?
Get up, gym, work 9-7ish, then back home or to a networking event.
What do you like to do when you aren’t gaming or working in gaming? 
I like to excercise, I’m writing awoke of fiction, I go to a lot of business and law events, clubbing, movies and I go through various hobbies all the time.
Can you give any advice to anyone looking to start working in the Esports industry?

Yes, find a way that suits you for keeping up to date with current Esports news – it’s easier said than done because so much happens on a daily basis but that’s exactly why it’s important. The industry is moving so fast that you can’t let too much slip by. I like podcasts and twitter best but other platforms like twitch and Instagram can be just as good
