What do you consider your biggest achievement so far in your career?
Learning how to work within a public sector type role where the resources you have are not sufficient but the job you want to do is still of the highest level.
What has been the best thing to happen to you in the last year?
Professionally growing the number of financial sponsors Shaping has and personally walking the entire length of the South Downs Way with my three besties.
What do you want to happen in the next year?
I want the value that Shaping is bringing to the City to increase and positively affect more of the population.
Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
I will be retired and at home driving my wife Liz mad!
What do you like doing in your spare time/to relax?
I cycle cross country every Tuesday for around 26 miles, and run once a week with my best friend, Barry, with whom I've been running with for the past 30 years.
What do you like about living/working in Portsmouth?
The people, the people and the people.
What is your favourite place in Portsmouth?
Anywhere where I can see the sea and the sun rise. We are so lucky to have all of this on our door step.
What one thing do you think would make living in Portsmouth better?
Better infrastructure and public transport.
Imagine yourself as a child. What would you say to your younger self?
Don't over strive to be someone else, who you are is more than good enough.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself that we might not know.
In the 30 years running with my bestie we've covered 27,000 miles which is the equivalent to running right around the world!
