My first job
This is it! Having qualified in 1987, I became a partner at Menzies in 1993.

My favourite meal
Anything by Heston Blumenthal. I just love the precision of his cooking. Try ‘Heston Blumenthal at Home’, just make sure you set aside a lot of time!

Who would play me in a movie
I would love to say George Clooney or Brad Pitt, but it is more likely to be John Cleese!
