A Yorkshire boy originally but have lived and worked in London for near enough 10 years since graduation. I work in the City but prefer to live East in Hackney (East over West any day) - great coffee, cafes, independent shops, creative vibe and really accessible by bike (my standard method of transport - push not motor!). I love outdoor sports but there aren't many mountains in London so I go to Scotland / Switzerland / Austria each year to chase either the snow or the sunshine. I also climb, run, attempt tennis / squash and very occasionally (and badly) play golf. I read a lot and seeing the world is a passion of mine.
