Starting off as an engineering draughtsman many years ago, Paul then undertook his HNC in Civil Engineering. Over time, his skills expanded to include design work in drainage and ground modelling; meaning Paul is now fully conversant in all aspects of sustainable drainage design, acting as a key liaison with relevant authorities. Jobs undertaken vary in size from one-off bespoke housing schemes to multi-phase residential developments, as well as the earthworks and drainage for the London Olympics 2012 BMX track.
A self-confessed road cycling nut, Paul has seven bikes to choose from and a very understanding wife. He is a firm believer in the infamous Rule #5 which he tests regularly when taking on the major climbs of the Tour de France, Vuelta a Espãna and Giro d’Italia each year.
When not riding, Paul spends his time working on the family home; taking Bob, the world’s laziest whippet, out for a walk whilst trying to convince him that he is supposed to be a fast and lithe hound; and building lego, having mock kung-fu battles or blasting round the local BMX track with his seven-year-old son.
Paul secretly wishes he had been a pro-cyclist.
