When I was a child I wanted to be a fireman

I'm motivated by providing excellent service throughout

A book that changed me is Les Misérables

I'm good at understanding people

My greatest achievement so far is my daughter, Eleanor

I'm still trying to understand why people can’t always be polite... it’s not difficult

The best advice I ever had was was work as hard as you can at all times but also be in the right place at the right time

I like people who are honest

I'm always saying why haven't I moved to St Albans yet?

If I had more time I would play more golf

My life in six words fortunate, fun, fast, furious and foodie

St Albans is a beautiful place to work
