Personal Profile

I am married to Louise, who is a Consultant Paediatrician. Together we have two young children, Anna and Daniel, who are a never ending source of amusement and account for the majority of their free time outside of work! When the opportunity arises I can be found on the golf course working on my handicap or watching rugby.
