I have spent the majority of my life living in various parts of Islington. I started at the firm in 1990 as a trainee under the tutorage of Geoffrey Hotblack and I rose to partnership in 1998. I opened the Highbury office in 2006 and ran that before handing it over to Alasdair. I now look after new business, working with developers and contractors which I am finding pleasantly challenging. To unwind, I get out my bike and go cycling. I organise the Hotblack bike rides which are a great way for us all to get to know each other out of the office and keep fit too!
