What do you think makes a successful place 'work'?
Places that reflect and build upon the character and identity of a place and where it’s benefits are felt not only in the immediate context but further afield.
What is your favourite place & why?
I don’t really have one favourite place but Port Meirion in North Wales was a great experience, there is something very bizarre about going past traditional welsh cottages to arrive at a Italian village on the seaside.
What interests you outside of work?
I spend a lot of my time listening to music from all genres and like to play the drums and piano when I get the chance.
What place do you most want to visit in the next ten years?
I would love to go to Japan and maybe explore a bit of Asia just to experience the difference in cultures and amazing landscapes.
