Coffee Break with… is a Christie & Co series showcasing the brilliance, expertise, and diversity of our network of over 200 employees.
When did you join Christie & Co?
I joined Christie & Co in November 2022.
What was your first job?
My first job, well it was more volunteering, but they gave me some pocket money every now and then, was working at a falconry centre between the ages of 14 – 16.
In a couple of sentences, can you tell us a bit about your job at Christie & Co?
Based in the West Midlands I sell and acquire hotel and accommodation businesses. I’ve now started to venture over the border into Mid Wales as well, the scenery is stunning!
What’s your favourite thing about Christie & Co?
Not every day is the same, and the various characters you meet and places you go, it’s an interesting role.
Tell us a bit about your life outside work – what are your hobbies?
I’m a rural boy at heart, so most of my time is spent outside, I’ve got friends and family who farm so usually I’m out and about helping them with bits and pieces. Another love is motorsport, I used to race and rally, but due to the cost it’s just unachievable currently, but I would like to get back into it again.
What’s your hometown? Where do you live now?
I haven’t moved too far, I was born in Oxfordshire and now live in Warwickshire, so just hopped across the county line.
Where’s the best place you’ve been on holiday?
Scotland is quite hard to beat, the Glenfinnan Viaduct and valley is stunning.
If you could live and work in any city, where would you go?
I don’t think I would… for me, it’s the countryside all day long.
What’s your favourite film?
100% Four Weddings and a Funeral, such a classic!
What is your favourite movie quote?
Michael Caine in the Italian Job - “You’re only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!”
What is one thing on your bucket list?
Going to the USA/Canadian border and spending some time on a ranch.
What news source do you read every day?
Various, whatever headline grabs my attention.
What’s your social media platform of choice?
Instagram - too much rubbish on Facebook these days.
