What is your dream?
Who or what have inspired you?
Who's your hero?
My family, in particular my sister, constantly inspire me. If I had to choose a single guitarist I would have to say Julian Bream.
Any other special talents?
Um… where do I start?! I think I enjoy too many things! I love free diving, reading, dressmaking, cooking – trying to fit everything in is a big challenge!
