My career history:

  • Studied at Sheffield and then Reading University post graduate.
  • During my professional career I have worked for Faithful & Gould, WS Atkins, Knight Frank and CNP.
  • One of the original partners who then set up Paragon in 2009.

My career highlight:

It's very rewarding to become the trusted advisor for key clients and consistently deliver results for them. Obviously the growth in Paragon as a business has been an exciting challenge.

What keeps me motivated:

Continued growth of our business across the European market. It's always a challenge but the satisfaction of successfully delivering large or complex portfolios and trophy asset investments succinctly, wherever they are located, is always a thrill.

What I do differently:

A 'can do' attitude with a sharp commercial mindset. Strategic problem solving to steer a client through complex technical issues, ideally whilst retaining a sense of humour and a smile on my face!

What keeps me busy at the weekend:

A young family takes priority but in my spare time I can be found on the golf course, preferably a tough seaside links.
Recently joined a lawn tennis club and enjoying living by the coast. Keen traveller with a love for the Far East.
Budding amateur photographer, vinyl record collector and long suffering season ticket holder at Barnsley FC.

My favourite food:

Got to be sushi or a nice rare steak.

My favourite eatery:

Hawksmoor for the steak or Hakkasan / Nobu for far eastern favourites.

My favourite drink:

Nice single malt whisky or a strong cup of Yorkshire Tea. No sugar.

My favourite travel destination:

China / Hong Kong and Japan. Kent Coast and Yorkshire on a budget!

Not many people know this about me:

Once (accidentally) hit Hugh Grant with a stray golf ball. Great shot in my opinion...
