THIS IS WHAT HE SAID .....
If you weren’t a manager at Clear and Lane, what would you be?
I would probably be either a Physicist or a Motor Mechanic! I was studying for a Physics Degree before I trained as an accountant,
and I have fully restored two minis (so far).
What is your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement has to be my family. I have a wonderful wife and two lovely boys. However it is probably being extremely lucky rather than being down to me!
What is your most embarrassing moment?
I do embarrass very easily, which must be the reason I seem to have avoided very embarrassing situations. I do recall however winning the first drawn prize in a raffle. The excitement overtook me somewhat so I ran onto the stage in front of many hundreds of people waving my ticket for joy to find out my ticket was buff in colour not yellow!
Who are the three people you most would like to have round for dinner?
Sir Alexander Arnold Constantine Issigonis, Michael Stipe & Gordon Ramsey. Two for their absolute genius and the other to do the cooking for me.
What is your claim to fame?
I came second in a classic mini concourse competition. I won a national trophy and had my name printed in the magazine “MiniWorld”.
Perhaps my real claim to fame is yet to happen!
Tell us something about you that we don’t know and that would surprise us?
I am a Weather fanatic.
I have a weather station in my garden and regularly follow the long range forecasts online contributing to forums discussing them.
Yes, I am a geek, but does that surprise you?
