Personal Profile

I enjoy sports and plays squash competitively, I enjoy climbing hills. I summited Mount Kilimanjaro at over 5900 metres last year and spend spare time on the hills of the Lake District, North Wales and the Scottish Highlands. I am a father of two children which has kerbed my golf handicap however I hope to return to improve upon this in later life.
