  • What are your hobbies?

Running, playing electric and classical guitar, travelling.

For some strange reason, I like to run about five times a week. Skip the coffee in the morning, I’ll just have water! I also write and record music on electric and classical guitar. I’ve always enjoyed travelling and have explored Europe and Mexico extensively.

  • Aside from food, water, and shelter, what one thing could you not go a day without?

Chocolate and the internet! That’s two. Don’t make me choose just one!

  • What is your favorite vacation or holiday?

Spain is my favorite country to travel in. I’ve also spent more than four years here, in various, separate extended stays. Great weather, diverse country, interesting history and culture, and a slower pace of life that feels like travelling back in time to a more simpler era.

  • If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?

I’d like to hang out in a music studio with one of the many guitarists I admire. We’d jam and make some noise (I would make more noise than they would though).

  • How did you start working as a Virtual Assistant?

I worked in administrative positions in English schools and a college for several years, but I always wanted to transition to freelance virtual work. Over the years, I kept learning and improving my admin and web development skills until I was able to make the jump to virtual work.

  • What is your favorite thing about your career?

Technology, computers and the internet is fascinating and challenging work. Designing web sites is also creative and engaging. I enjoy producing web sites that are visually appealing and help my clients meet their marketing goals. Having the chance to change office locations occasionally is a nice bonus too!
