Extracurricular interests and activities:

Outside work, my wife and I try to keep pace with our two young children and self-important cat.  I was a choral scholar at university and continue to be involved in a wide range of music. I also enjoy watching or playing almost any sport and can often be found shouting at people in my capacity as a qualified rugby referee.
