I am a big Gillingham fan and used to follow them home and away across England, having grown up literally across the street from the stadium.

Now having settled stateside, I enjoy going to the movies with my wife Sophia and we also like to get up early on the weekends and watch the premier league games on TV with our Golden Doodle, aptly named ‘Rooney’ after my wife’s favourite Man United legend.
