Hi, I'm Da Boss
I was born and raised in Formby, a posh bit of Liverpool, I now live in (and love) Cambridge I aspire to maybe stay here or retire in Devon (South Hams). Before kids I would have said New Zealand.
In my opinion, the top 3 things which make a great team are:
1. Relaxed leadership and office vibe.
2. Only hiring people better than you at that thing.
3. Ensuring that everyone gets on well.
My favourite thing about Cambridge is the extremely high standard of thought leadership and intellectuals.
If I could swap places with anybody in the world, for one day - it would be Trump, because I would resign, or David Attenborough so I could be awesome for just one day.
My all-time favourite quote/ saying is "Onwards and upwards".
When I am not working, you'll find me with my kids usually in the garden.
My best-kept secret is Bertha.
The best concert I ever attended was Radiohead, Glastonbury 1997.
The person that inspires me the most is my oldest son, Harry - who will try anything and is awesome at most things. He takes life in his stride and I love that.
If I could tell my 21-year-old self one thing it would be: stop smoking bongs. Start walking in the Yorkshire Dales (I was at Uni in Leeds and didn't really see the beauty all around me until I was 31).
The top 3 things on my bucket list are
1. Walking across the world.
2. Cycling across Europe.
3. Swimming across a small lake.
Instruments that I have attempted to play include the Recorder. It was a very short musical career.
My favourite day out within 60 miles of Cambridge is North Norfolk - Holkham Beach and woods. It reminds me of home (Formby woods and beach).
Every single day I wish I could be home sooner to spend time with the kids.
