Chris is an avid sportsman and is keen to take part in any sporting challenges. He particularly enjoys football, tennis and going to the gym. Chris enjoys visiting new places and has taken the opportunity to travel to many interesting countries around the world. His favourite places so far have been Iceland and Maldives, two very different climates but equally amazing. Chris is a fan of playing strategic games and will happily challenge anyone to a game of chess, draughts or his personal favourite Connect 4. He enjoys spending time reading books, learning (rather badly) to cook and is very excited to experience life in Shanghai.
