    A Little About Me

    I am a keen sportsman, my passion is rugby union. I make every effort to attend rugby events around the World supporting my National side. I also play squash, football and ski. I also cycle and go to the gym in order to try and keep some level of fitness.

    My greatest achievement in recent times is that I completed an unsupported ‘End to End’ bicycle ride of Great Britain. This involved riding from the most North Easterly point (John O’Groats) to the most South Westerly point  (Lands End). It was the hardest yet most enjoyable and rewarding experience of my life and a substantial amount of money was raised for charity in the process.

    Living in close to the European Alps, I am a keen hiker and often go trekking in the mountains as well as ski in the winter. I like to read and go to concerts. I also like to socialise and meet new people.

    Lastly, I am learning to speak German. I am progressing along the required programme timeline; I can speak German to Mittelstrufe level, which (as the certificate states) requires one to communicate spontaneously and fluently with native speakers about a broad spectrum of topics.
