I believe my passion for building and construction was a result of playing with too much LEGO as a child. I still get the same buzz seeing a completed project when it was either dilapidated or just a vacant site to start with. As with all building surveyors, it also makes family car trips more interesting by pointing out all the buildings I have worked on… and people say we are boring!

Outside of work, I live in Kent with my wife and daughter, and much of my spare time now revolves around her social activities. When I do have time to myself, I enjoy mountain biking and have a passion for fast cars.
