Paris. I get a real buzz from the hustle of a big city, and when that is mixed in with the fantastic art and architecture that Paris has to offer, it really makes it special.
What is your favourite book?
The Da Vinci Code. Linking in with my favourite place, the book brings a real excitement to the history and art of Paris. The fast-paced, treasure hunting theme in many ways mirrors market research, as we search for clues to unlock gateways to answers and great riches.
What is your favourite pastime?
I love technology and photography, and in recent years I have been able to link the two so quickly. I can be using my DSLR, uploading the images straight to my tablet and editing them on the go, ready to relive the moment with friends and family straight away.
