INSIGHTS

Best Interview
One person who was surprisinaly down to earth and even remembered my name the following year when I interviewed him for a second ime in Dubai is golfer Tiger Woods.

Worst Interview
I wouldn’t say I’ve had any particularly difficult interviews, but like other types of celebrities, I’ve met some very difficult personalities with big egos. I can’t mention names!

Favourite Trip
Sydney 2000 Olympics. It was my first Olympics and Australia is the most amazing country in the world with the friendliest people!

Upcoming Plans
I am focusing more on consultancy work, with focus on the WRC Safari Rally, amongst other projects. I may return to radio part-time at some point.
