Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young children, the oldest child of which is now in the first year of Primary School.
When I am not at home, I am normally found on the golf course and I have a keen interest in the sport. I also enjoy hiking with my young family and have a passion for travel having back-packed around the world on several occasions. My most recent adventure was on a gap year, prior to joining TFT and settling down to family life, where I travelled through 18 countries over a 12-month period.
