Music, running and cycling (sometimes together!). Classical music could have been a career (I sing, play the oboe, organ and piano – unfortunately not as proficiently now as in the past) but a career in law won over. As a lawyer, the tools of my trade are words, but music has a language all of its own.
What is the single most important thing in life for you?
I would like to say Apis, but in truth it is my family and friends. They make everything else worthwhile.
What do you like most about Apis?
Its drive, ambition, energy, people, integrity and desire to make a difference. A winning combination!
How is a normal day at Apis?
A normal day does not exist. What makes Apis an exciting place to work as a lawyer, is the variety of things that we do. Every day is different.
