How I got into this industry…. Applying for a job as a warehouse assistant at ASAP and never looked back.

Best advice I've ever received.... This quote from Bob Kelso resonates with me: ‘Life is scary. Get used to it. There are no magical fixes. It’s all up to you. So get up off your keister, get out of here, and go start doin’ the work. Nothing in this world that’s worth having comes easy.”

You should really read.... “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. So many people leave school with a lack of financial education, this book talks about the basics and can help you on your way to understanding the perspective on money.

One thing the industry needs less of is.... Remembering the past.

Most hated buzzword or workplace expression… Proactive / reactive - people just say it to sound good but if there is no depth behind it then it’s pointless.

Best place I’ve been.... There’s a few, but the top ones for me are Banff in Canada, Snowden National Park in the UK and skiing in Meribel in France.

Don't worry about... Taking a day off.

Favourite meal… Breakfast. Three scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, an avocado and a slice of wholemeal toast.

How I cope with stress…. Having an awesome team around me, an understanding wife and a lot of exercise.

Something about you that people might be surprised by... I read a lot and I love watching Emmerdale.
