My main focus at Orbis is working with the engineering team to ensure we are getting a strong delivery into our Development roles.

Originally from North London, I've also been lucky to live in Ireland, Greece and Barcelona. I love football and play as much as I can. As a youth I played for Tottenham Football Club then onto a variety of other clubs. When I'm not on the pitch, I also enjoy boxing.
