About Me:

I am married with a daughter and live on the Kent borders. Whilst I play golf and the piano badly and am an enthusiastic but not particularly good karaoke singer, I’m far more skilled at enjoying good food and drinks (I’ve an impressive tally of Michelin star restaurants I’ve eaten at and an extensive collection of gins and rums) and long-haul travel.
