My favourite part of working at Dans Le Noir ? is interacting with my customers. They are all different; some want to mostly talk among themselves whilst others have heaps of questions, some about blindness in general and some about my life.

Outside of work I enjoy time with friends and family, football in the winter (GO TIGES!), walking with my guide dog Scottie, listening to music and playing games on my iPhone.

I don’t know if I’d say it’s a philosophy, but I always try to do my best and am not satisfied with anything less.

2. SHARING (information and stories)
3. cONFIDENCE (that’s what working at Dans le noir ? gives me)
