What music do you like to listen to when you drive?
When driving, I’d like to listen to relaxing/mellow music like Coldplay, Mumford and Sons etc.

Do you have any mileage that you fance the most to drive, why this one?
I love driving on the back-country roads of New Zealand and exploring new places. The west coast of the South Island is a very special place, as you feel so isolated at the same time drive on amazing twisty scenic roads.

What is your best tip to drive smart?
Be patient it’s my strongest advice. It’s very easy to become tense or impatient with other road users when on the road, but remember, a small speed difference will only make a few minutes difference at the end. So, relax, turn up the music and enjoy your ride.

Why should anyone join your team?
In our team you will win! I'm a very competitive person and will do all I can to work with all our team mates to ensure we put our best foot forward. While this will be a great competition it’s important not to forget the important messages, this challenge carries on. We're in to strive for being safer and more complete drivers, something we all can share and inspire many more people to be.
