About Me

Favourite hobbies: I enjoy cycling, travelling woodworking and studying Mandarin Chinese.

Alternative career choice: if I had not gone into Law, I would have been an Architect.

My favourite meal: this would have to be a medium rare hanger steak, accompanied by a pint of ‘hoppy’ India Pale Ale.

Two luxury items I’d take on a desert island: a luxury yacht and a seaplane (so I’d have more than one way of getting off…).
