When not on site or in the office, I enjoy spending quality time with my lovely wife and two children. I like to keep active, as a keen runner and gym-goer, often as a family! You will also see me out and about at dragon boat racing, triathlon relays and other events. Less sporty activities include foreign travel, enjoying good food and fine wine in the great company of family and friends. I enjoy cooking and baking, preferably accompanied by a glass of something and some good music to help with the creativity!

I am a very proud dad and particularly enjoy watching my son play rugby and listening to my daughter’s piano performances.
