What year did you start your job?
Why did you join Fisher German?
Having met with a number of the partners, I was impressed by their passion and professionalism and I wanted to be a part of a business that was forging forwards and expanding.
What has been your favourite project and why?
I have enjoyed dealing with some very complex lift and shift negotiations of telecoms equipment to facilitate redevelopment of properties including a difficult case last year in Birmingham City Centre which was challenging but very rewarding and where I was able to use best powers of persuasion with the affected mobile operators to enable the project to be delivered on time and on budget.
Most admired, non-property brand?

Most admired, non-property brand? Ripple, though I suspect not many people have heard of this Silicone Valley Fintech start-up who probably over time will revolutionise the way money is moved round the world
Gardening with my wife and spending time in my favourite place, Norfolk. If I could I would move to the north coast of Norfolk!
Best holiday destination?
Croatia without a shadow of a doubt, though Tuscany in Italy is also beautiful and has much to offer.
Who would you like to be stranded in a lift with?
Boris Johnson as I’d just love to know what makes him tick!
What’s your favourite film of all time?
I’ve got so many, I don’t know where to start or, for that matter, finish.
