Who are your clients?
I have the privilege to work with a wide range of clients. From landowners who need planning expertise to developers who are looking to purchase land for development.
How do you describe how you work?
I'm straight-forward, committed, tenacious, dedicated. I love building strong relationships and going that extra mile for my clients. I have a naturally inquisitive nature, so untangling planning issues is right up my street.
And when you are not sorting out clients' planning matters?
I am a self confessed petrol head - fast cars, fast bikes. My passion is Formula 1. However I also have a a slightly more sedate pastime - I love doing a bit of baking. Watch out Paul Hollywood.
