I am a devoted family man with two young daughters who keep me on my toes outside work. I played a lot of sport in college and was a member of Cardiff Medicals RFC. I still try to maintain contacts with that Association. Although I don't play rugby any more, due to age catching up with me, I support our nation's winning team. I like to keep fit and I still go to the gym, although the kids tend to keep me active enough.
