What do you do when not at work?
I have a great passion for photography and like to take landscapes of the Cornish coastline. I’ve been known to get up well before dawn in order to get on location prior to sunrise to capture the perfect moment. We also have a rather “bonkers” Cockapoo called Harry, so he’s a focus when it comes to long walks.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Haha, well the one I can tell you about is listening to 80’s music. It brings back great memories and was so less serious than today’s music. I think it captured the time perfectly and lots of people still sing along to those 80’s classics especially on New Years eve!
What inspires you?
I think it’s when ordinary people do extraordinary things and put others before self, like forces veterans who have suffered beyond duty and take on unimaginable challenges to raise money for charities, or members of the public who save lives because they’re the only ones there. It demonstrates that we are only restrained by our own beliefs and actions.
What’s your favorite food?
Easy, has to be a thick, juicy fillet steak perfectly cooked on the BBQ, accompanied by a very cold glass of Muscato.
