I was born in Zimbabwe, raised in South Africa. I have also lived in New York and Los Angeles but have been happily living in London for almost 15 years.

I started my working life as a student in bars and restaurants to pay my way through university. I then worked in the music industry and performed as a musician - I was convinced I wanted to be a music producer when I grew up. I would never have believed it if someone told me I would be a lawyer... and really enjoying it.

My favourite subject at school was art - I loved the freedom it offered and I had a fantastic art teacher! I struggled with Maths and history, but they have ended up giving me the grounding I needed in good English writing and logic to become a lawyer.
