What is your favourite tool or equipment you use at work and why?
The hour glass sitting on my desk. It helps me remember that time is a valuable resource and to use it wisely.
What motivates you?
Getting projects and tasks completed and not letting people down.
Favourite quote?
‘The first step to problem solving is patience’
‘You have two ears and one mouth. You should do twice as much listening as you do talking’
Who or what inspires you and why?
People who achieve and get things done. I don’t have a lot of time or patience for faffing about, so I love to see people achieving things in both their personal and professional life.
In my spare time I like:
Motorbike riding
Music and playing the drums
Travelling around the world
Do you have anything else you want to add?
In the words of the wonderful and delightful Hunter S Thompson:
‘Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, ‘Wow!”
