Difficult to choose just one!!! Surely this must start with becoming chartered and the work and effort that preceded this. Secondly it must be issuing practical completion certificates on any major redevelopment. Seeing a project materialise from a client brief to a finished product is very satisfying. Anyone involved in major projects reading this will understand the journey travelled and hard work that is required to negotiate your way through to the finish line.
Being part of a team in creating interesting, innovative environments with trending creative design for people to enjoy and occupy.
Have fun while at work and with others I work with. I see no reason why you can’t inject humour and humanity into the work you do. I’ve found this motivates teams much more and generates better results with better cohesion between teams.
I love good architecture and design and enjoy being part of creating better environments for us to occupy and look at. Equally I love the great outdoors and being Surrey born and bred I love the English country side, fresh air and walks to the pub for a roast with my fiancée Lucy, family and friends.
I’m very much into fitness and regularly punish myself with a HIIT session in the gym or a cheeky 10km, 10mile or half marathon. This however allows me to indulge in some of the topics discussed above guilt free. There is a fierce competition between Lucy and I on who has the most medals, sadly I’m losing at present which she is quite happy at reminding me of!
All things healthy, now I’ve reached my 40’s the old metabolism isn’t as youthful as it used to be! I cook everything from scratch using the Lean in 15 Body Coach cook books. Too many favourites to name but the grilled salmon with avocado, feta and pumpkin seeds is a winner but will never say no to a good medium steak and BBQ chicken… on a coal BBQ, none of this gas business!
Well this is where my guilty pleasure is announced to the world… Nando’s… love a good Nando’s.
Difficult one to answer? Could change depending on the occasion and mood ranging from a good dry New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc in the sun or with a good meal with my lady, a dark and stormy cocktail in the evening, a good beer with the boys in the pub and if drunk all in that order a Bloody Mary the morning after.
Planet Earth, quite simply love travelling wherever, whenever. Most recent travel destinations include New Zealand and Japan however, the Caribbean and Cornwall also feature in the happy place top 10 list.
Apparently my surname is meant to mean 10th in line to the throne of Julius Cesar, always knew I was destined for greater things… just need to find out who the nine in front of me are?
