Why did you choose a career in housing?
Probably like most others who work in housing, I fell into it!

How do you relax after work?
Not sure if you call it relaxing, but I am a massive rugby fan, a season ticket holder at the Ospreys (a very stressful season) and also an avid follower of Pontypridd Youth, my sons team.

What’s your greatest achievement?
My son Ben, I am so proud of the young man he has grown up to be and not sure where he gets his brains from.

Your most embarrassing moment?
While waiting to pick up my son from an Ospreys rugby camp, I managed to tip a cup of hot chocolate over my lap, I had been to the gym that day so went to change into my joggers, but decided to do it in the car as it was quiet, or so I thought, mid undress, the full Ospreys squad finished training and started to file pass my car and I am struggling to pull up my jogging bottoms.

What was your last holiday destination and what did you think of it?
New York, an amazing place but what an attack on your senses
