Where do you see your career taking you?
I like project management because it’s such a varied role. Each project is different and once one is finished I find myself working with a new group of people who have a completely separate focus.
I’ve also started mentoring people recently, so I’d love for this to become a bigger part of my work.
Who is your biggest career influence?
My Grandad told me that if I start something then I should always finish it and do it the best I can. I’ve taken this with me throughout my career and out into life as well.
If you weren’t in this career, what would you be?
Probably a specials motorbike fabricator. These are bikes that people have put thought and effort into. They’ll change the colours, the wheels, frame and maybe even create some bespoke hand crafted element. I’ve put my hand to this kind of thing previously, but not in any professional sense.
What is your proudest moment?
Other than being a husband and a Dad, it’s as simple as when someone thanks me for doing a good job. I’ve done things like walk to Everest base camp, but it’s the simple things that matter the most.
What is the best invention ever?
Pizza. It’s a meal in one; carbs, proteins and vegetables if you’re lucky.
