School

When not being a dentist, Lewis enjoys getting outside as much as possible, whether that be on the mountain bike, the road bike or playing football.  Along with experiencing local restaurants with friends, he likes to experiment in the kitchen, relaxing with a beer as he tries the latest creation.
