Why did you want to join inspiresport?
The role and company were sold to me at interview – I have a huge passion for sport and the opportunity excited me. I wanted to stay in sport after 10 years at the Welsh Rugby Union and this was a perfect next-step role.

If you had to describe yourself with just one emoji – which one would it be?
What do you like doing in your spare time – do you have any hobbies/how do you relax?
I watch pretty much any sport – mostly football, NFL and cycling. Love (good) movies. I play football occasionally and cycle around 40 miles every week. A lot of my time is taken up by my 3 year old son – we have a lot of fun together.
Who is your sporting hero?
Too many to mention here:- William Perry, Walter Payton, Chris Boardman, Darren Gough, Lucas Radebe, Kevin Sinfield etc etc etc…. The only time I have managed to share a sporting arena with one was when I played for a WRU team against the Welsh FA and I played against Gary Speed. I will cherish that moment for a lot of reasons.
