What I'm doing now

In January 2013 I moved to Singapore to take on a role at Google Southeast Asia. At the time of writing, I’ve been here almost a year – and love life in Singapore!

I spend a lot of my time travelling (both for work and leisure) – and slowly beginning to cover off all of what the region has to offer.

My best Lancaster memory

This sounds quite corny, but my favourite memory is actually of the very first time I visited the university for an open day, about 8 years ago. I’ll always remember the first ride up the drive to the University – and deciding (even before seeing any of the lecture rooms, facilities, etc!) that I’d be almost certainly going to Lancaster! 

What Lancaster means to me

Lancaster University will always be the place where I met some of my best life-long friends, enjoyed many of my funniest moments and learnt a great deal in (retrospectively) a relatively short period of time.

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

I’m keen to meet other Lancaster alumni, and always happy to be a friendly face for any people moving to Singapore (please get in touch if you have any questions).
