The thing I love the most in my job is… excellent company culture. Sinclair is a positive workplace where all the employees are valued, supported and nurtured irrespective of gender, sexual orientation or colour. I feel welcomed and accepted in this friendly environment.
I find my inspiration from… music and visual art. Actively listening to music is crucial to my wellbeing. Rock, classical, folklore, and jazz can keep my writing juices flowing whilst visual arts keeps my mind active and interest fully engaged.
On the weekend, you usually find me… In the gym. I’m always occupied with aerobics and boxing, refreshing my soul and body.
