I'm thrilled to have joined Apex TP, it's an exciting opportunity to deliver work alongside a great team and help continue to support a flourishing business.


To unwind, I enjoy being in the countryside, cycling, watching live sports and spending time with my family and friends.


I'm also always looking forward to the next ski trip too!
