About the speaker
Terminally single and older than most people think, I have a low boredom threshold so I tend to keep myself frantically busy. My day job is a HR & Compliance Manager, and nothing keeps my job more interesting than people – with all their myriad quirks, foibles and worries. I travel a lot (as you’ll hear from my talk) and a keen photographer – I’ve taken a specific interest in art nouveau architecture and have spent the last two years photographing over 200 art nouveau buildings built between 1880 – 1920 across Europe, I’m a singer/songwriter in the process of writing and recording my fourth album, I’m a huge music fan (I own over 2000 CDs), I love football (big Liverpool fan) and play 5-a-side 3 times a week. I enjoy going to the gym and circuit training an, as you know, I’ve just bought a new house and have spent the last 4 weeks frantically working on re-decorating it from top to bottom.
