1. When did you know you wanted this as your career? 
When I first had an amazing experience at a barber's in Dublin. I became instantly fascinated.
2. What is your favourite part of the job?
Problem-solving! I always ask clients if and where they struggle with their hair. Is it a styling issue? Is it a haircut issue? Either way, finding that solution for the client will always put a smile on my face.
3. Any advice to anyone thinking of this as a career?
Hair splinters will be a bigger issue than you’ll ever have imagined! Try and surround yourself with like-minded ambitious people! It has to be something you’re passionate about.
4.Top tip? 
Hairdryer hairdryer hairdryer! Use pre-styling products before your blow-dry. The less product you’ll need afterwards, the longer your hair will stay in place but yet touchable!
5. Who is the most famous person you have cut?
WBA football player Joe Ward and a couple of other football players.
6. What is your favourite product to use and why?
Evo Sea salt spray and Haze powder combination. It's the best way to have styled hair that doesn’t look, overly styled.
