“I used to regularly play ice hockey and rugby union in my spare time, even enjoying lifting some silverware in a charity tournament or two! After undergoing dialysis treatment, I have had to step back from collision sports, and I have been seeking fresh fresh challenges. I have picked up a few new, if less physically demanding, hobbies. I can now be found around any table-top game, often collecting an unreasonable amount of dice, or enthusiastically (bordering on recklessly) wielding an airbrush!

When it comes to these games, I enjoy a casual game and enjoy the social aspect of playing the game and narrative storey dwelling and developing a range of previously hidden artistic talents for miniature painting.”
