Q: When did you join Haven Knox-Johnston?

A:  I’ve been part of Euromarine Insurance Services since January 2017, and transitioned over to Haven KJ in June 2022.

Q: What’s the best bit of the job for you?

A:  I like that there’s always something new to learn, any conversation can lead to a research rabbit hole.

A:  I’m a reasonable guitar player and poor golfer, music takes up most of my non-work time.

Q: Who would you most like to swap places with for the day and why?

A:  Probably Eddie Van Halen (before he died). I wouldn’t mind living in California with his talent and guitar/car collection for a day.

Q: What’s been your greatest sailing experience?

A:  A trip to go snorkelling somewhere in Spain when I was a kid – I was more impressed with the catamaran than the fish.

Q: Got any future sailing ambitions?

A:  I’d love to get involved in racing. If there’s space on your boat, give me a call…

Q: Where would you say is the best place to have fun on the water? Canoeing in Kent? Banana-boating in Benidorm?

A:  I live in Kent where the sea is all around, so I’d have to say that’s the best place

Q: What’s your favourite boat-related film, book or song, and why?

A:  Bismarck by Sabaton. A heavy metal song about a heavy metal boat.

Q:  If you could learn a new skill in just 10 minutes, what would it be?

A:  To be able to sing without needing to learn and practice?

Q: And finally… tell us one surprising fact that most people don’t know about you?
