Having my own team at Paragon. Management has always inspired me; mentoring more junior staff and watching them develop within the Paragon business is hugely satisfying.
The desire to succeed and constantly improve. No matter what stage in our career we are always learning and that inspires me.
I consider myself a people person and use this to broker strong relationships for the benefit of a project or transaction.
I am a very active person who loves the outdoors. I am busy either cycling, swimming, playing golf or some form of hike / trek / walk. I am a keen chef so I love throwing a dinner party or BBQ for friends.
I’m a huge fan of many cuisines. Fresh food, cooked well and full of flavour cannot be beaten. Italian food in Italy (not here) has yet to be topped.
In London… I am a big fan of Jason Atherton and have had fantastic meals in all his restaurants.
A hearty red throughout most of the year and following my west country roots; cider in the summer.
I still have places on the bucket list but so far, Tulum in Mexico tops it.
I have summited Europe’s tallest mountain via the North face, Mount Elbrus (5,642m) in Russia unaided.
