1. Why Barbados? You could live anywhere in the world... I just love the climate, the people, the amazing beaches, the way of life and the golf courses are a bonus .
2. You’ve recently become an Ambassador for the newly revamped Apes Hill Golf Course. How did that happen and what’s so special about it now? 
I have always been passionate about property in general and that includes here in Barbados. 
I love Apes Hill as a development and it has been exciting to see its evolution from what Sir Charles created to the magnificent place that it is now. 
Alleyne Real Estate manages my home here on the island and my friend that runs it keeps me updated on any new developments. He actually introduced me to the new Apes Hill development team and from there I’ve become an ambassador and it’s great to part of a this amazing resort. The golf course has become really fantastic with some breathtaking views over the west and east coasts from many of the holes. 
3. What would you say to a golfer to convince them to come here rather than other destinations? 
Barbados is the ultimate family winter destination and is also amazing in the summer. If you are a golfer there are wonderful courses to play. 
4. What’s the best thing you love to do in Barbados - besides golf!
I enjoy taking in some of the wonderful restaurants on the island, taking boat rides up and down the west coast and exploring the culture of Barbados. Lots of people just come for the weather and beaches. But when you live and spend time in Barbados there’s a lot of things to do on the island.
5. What’s your favorite Bajan delicacy? 
I love flying fish sandwiches and bajan fish cakes.
