Some people get to do jobs that suit their personality. I’m one of those lucky ones.
Yes, I had Meccano and Lego as a child, and it’s true that I just have to know how things work. But above all I love it when a plan comes together.
My favourite downtime is when my partner Alison and I get to spend time cooking a meal together. I like watching family or friends sharing a meal and just enjoying each other’s company.
I treasure the fact that my life has been enriched by four wonderful daughters.
I’m a student of history, and I have a back catalogue of titles picked up on my travels patiently awaiting their turn. I enjoy a good movie and may drop a cliché from a long lost ‘classic’ into the conversation from time to time. On weekends I can be found paddling up and down a river, or listening to my favourite tunes whilst working on our home.
…. and staying up late at night beside a campfire under the stars is one of the greatest pleasures in my life.
Sometimes I get to be part of something that elevates my profession to an art, where the result is much more than what we all imagined at the start.
