My career highlight:

Designing and building two schools in South Africa with the University of Nottingham, sparking my passion for Project Management. I can still recall all the details! 

What keeps me motivated:

Overcoming the many challenges which construction projects create and seeing the end-users enjoy the spaces created. I’m always looking for the next challenge…

What I do differently:

I ensure that the project team are on the journey with me and instil we’re all in this together. Team work is essential! 

What keeps me busy at the weekend:

I live in Haywards Heath with my better half and we enjoy exploring the South Downs and the Sussex Coast for the next best restaurant or drinking establishment. I regularly attend my local Crossfit gym and enjoy keeping fit and healthy. My family all live nearby so regularly spend weekends catching up with them and doting on my young nephew.

My favourite food:

Steak cooked medium/rare with a selection of sides.

My favourite eatery:

Any place that will provide yummy food… Hawksmoor, Barbecoa, Gaucho.

My favourite drink:

Gin & Tonic or a glass of Malbec.

My favourite travel destination:

I visited Iceland last year during autumn and took a road trip around the whole island. It’s an absolutely magical, awe inspiring country and would recommend anyone to visit. I was also lucky enough to see the Northern Lights… twice!

Not many people know this about me:

I can deadlift almost 1.5x my bodyweight!
