About me

 

I have just returned from London after a 4 year adventure in Spain. I'm easy-going but I like to be practical and try to avoid faff when working on anything: I'm a get-things-done kind of person. For the last four years I have been self-employed, and although I have been working alone, the nature of my work meant that I have developed very strong people and communication skills - I can still be serious and do the job, but I'd like to think that I manage it in a way that people don't even realise they're working towards something.
