Some fun facts…

I prefer coffee over tea, but always drink peppermint tea before heading to bed.

Roger Federer is my favourite tennis player EVER.  I even wrote a blog post about him.

I can pretty much recite the script of ‘Fawlty Towers’. The episode with Mrs. Richards is my favourite.

And I can see ghosts!

I’m also easy to work with, meet all deadlines, and have lots of happy clients.
