Role at BEST:
Who inspires you?
My father. Very much a self-made man. 60 years ago his family was turfed out of their house to make way for slum clearance. 60 years later he has built his own business from the ground and put three children through school and university. Very inspiring man, and a great beard!
Where’s your favourite place in the world?
Martinhoe, right on the cliffs. Lovely spot and where I proposed to my then girlfriend – she said yes!
If you could be any animal, which would you be?
What’s the last book you read?
Cat & Mouse, by James Patterson. Good thriller!
What’s your favourite movie?
Very tough question! I love movies, so there’s a few to choose from. The shortlist would include Saving Private Ryan, A Star is Born and Avengers: Endgame, but my all-time favourite is Gangs of New York.
What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
Quite difficult to narrow this one down too! If I had to pick one thing it would be a branded follow up deck I’ve just finished for a big project right here in the UK.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
Ilove the cannelloni at a little Italian restaurant in Bideford called Italian Kitchen. Absolutely amazing.
What quote do you live by?
If you win the toss, bat first.
What was your first job?
I worked for an MP in central Devon. He was brand new at the time, having just won his constituency, and has gone on to do very well. Destined for great things I think!
If you could only have three apps on your smartphone, which would you pick?
WhatsApp, Slack and SkyGo.
What’s your most used emoji?
? Slightly smiling face I expect. ?I do like a cricket bat and a fire ball though!
What’s your favourite purchase under £100?
Just got some Galaxy Buds for just under £100. Great purchase.
What unusual habits do you have?
I don’t know how unusual this is, but I quite often shower twice in a day (not in quick succession, don’t worry). I like to feel clean!
Favourite thing about working for BEST?
The vision. We have an amazing story to tell the world and I absolutely love being a part of that. What we are doing is so important for the future of this planet and so perfectly placed in the business landscape right now, it couldn’t be a more exciting time to be in energy efficiency. Trust me when I say – we’re going places.
