Secret lives of Xinjas: curious xinja JJ

We think it’s important to really get to know our xinja work comrades; unpack what they’re really into – as you never know where that hobby/interest might come in handy when you’re designing and building a bank.

In this series, we bring you the secret lives of Xinjas; an exploration of what rocks their world.

On the weekends I like to hit the mats and train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with my coach…while listening to some old school soul and funk!

If you were to get a tattoo, what would it say or what would the image be?

Funny thing I’m actually planning to get my chest and sleeve done with traditional Samoan designs to pay respect to my mother’s culture and our village Falelima.
