What’s your career highlight to date?

I got great satisfaction out of some of the events that I have been a part of, like the Gymshark Partnership event back in my Origin Fitness days, or bringing our own fitness concept REDLINE to life at FIBO and Elevate. Seeing people having a great time on your stand or at your event lifts me up.

You’ve got a free weekend; what are you getting up to?

Before my son started filling up my weekends with softplays and petting zoos, my partner and I used to go for highland walks or go camping by a nice loch if the weather allowed. I’m looking forward to doing that with Alex now as well.

Tell us something about yourself that most people wouldn’t know.

I struggle with this one, I’m a pretty open book! Maybe that I consider myself to have 4 siblings, as I have a younger full sister, and two wonderful older half-siblings, and their younger half-sister is always considered a part of my family as well even though I’m not blood related to her.

Have you ever met anyone famous?

Not so far, and I think I’d be far too worried to impose on them if I did! My hero for many years has been Stephen Fry, and I would be terrified to actually speak to him! He is one of the reasons I moved to the UK though, and why I developed a real love for the English language.

Where are you based and have you always lived there?

I’m based in West Lothian between Edinburgh and Livingston, but I’m originally from ‘the continent’. I grew up in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Germany, and moved to the UK when I was 17 to start Uni. Never left Scotland once I had landed!

Where’s the most extravagant place you’ve been to?

I once photographed a wedding in Dubai (my sister-in-law is a wedding photographer, and she needed help because there’s a gender divide in these weddings that meant her usual male partner couldn’t support). It was…absolutely insane. The amount of money poured into this – it’s what I imagined an Oscars party to look like, but it was one section of an overall wedding. The total wedding lasted almost a week I think, and they had rented out one of those fancy hotels by the waterfront. Culturally it was so impressive as well, as it’s not something I’ll likely have the privilege to witness again. Absolutely a core memory for me.

You’ve got £20 credit on Uber Eats; what are you ordering?

I’m always down for pizza, but recently there’s a new place that opened up that sells bao buns and poke bowls, and it feels a lot more guilt-free while still delicious, so maybe one of those!

If you’re active, what’s your favourite exercise regime?

I do hot power yoga 3 times a week, and we have a garage gym where I try to do some basic lifts and Olympic lifts to offset all the sitting (though I’ve switched to a standing desk now). I’m going to start running again soon as well, now the weather is turning nicer, but I’ll have to start from the bottom up with that one.

What’s your favourite holiday destination?

I don’t have a favourite – I have always loved impromptu travel, whether that’s a weekend break away or backpacking through a country. In terms of charm (and potential place to live) I’d choose the coast that runs along the south of France and north of Italy. I’ve had some beautiful holidays in Canada, Vietnam, and Mexico, and would really like to see Indonesia still. There’s so much beauty in Europe though that I feel you don’t really have to go far to have a good time.
