Fun Facts

  1. Favourite Music / Band – There’s a big 80s and 90s influence to my Spotify playlists. INXS were my favourites growing up.
  2. Best Place Visited – Cape Town. It has a super relaxed vibe, amazing scenery, great wine, and a fantastic place to watch cricket (with very cheap beer!) Although, if my wife is reading… it is of course Mauritius for our honeymoon.
  3. Favourite Meal – Anything served up by Mrs Hollins of course! I do love a curry, and Chicken Tikka Saagwala is my go to when we are out.
