Away from the office...

I have been a category 1 golfer for over 30 years and enjoy the healthy competition and camaraderie this brings.

I enjoy finding out about new technology and how this can solve the problems of the day. I also love watching a good Sci-Fi movie, eating good food, drinking a good white Marlborough and spending quality time relaxing with my family and friends.

More recently I have been interested in DIY, as we have recently moved to a 1930’s Art Deco house which I love and want to improve.
