“In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, heading out locally along the coast or into the countryside for walks whenever possible. We are great fans of the outdoors and I lead an active lifestyle, enjoying mountain and road biking, running, climbing, walking, squash and tennis. I also like nothing more than relaxing with friends over a meal and glass of wine, especially if cheese is involved. I’ve also been known to combine eating cheese and running a marathon through vineyards in France! “
