Personal Profile

I live in London with my wife and two children. I enjoy cooking Indian and Italian food and love long walks in Epping Forest. I am keen on photography and enjoy photographing and developing black and white portraits, though I am now embracing digital technology.

I am a keen cricketer and represent my trust at games between institutions.
