02 Job title
Douglas & Gordon
Head office in Pimlico
03 Where do you live?
Wandsworth Common and Dorset
04 How long have you been in London?
05 Preferred mode of transport
Motorbike, but councils seem to be doing their best to starve us of bike parking. If you want to get things done, get a motorbike.
06 Favourite London view
Up and down the Thames from any bridge, preferably from my bike. Or standing in the middle of Cadogan Square Gardens - it could be 1860.
07 Ideal weekend in London
Getting out - preferably to Dorset. Where I live you can’t hear a thing, perfect. But if not then spending time in Richmond Park with Snoopy, my Jack Russell, is a reasonable substitute.
08 Favourite restaurant
Como Lario in Chelsea, which NEVER changes, or Galvin at Windows on top of Park Lane’s London Hilton – it has staggering views and fabulous food.
09 I’ve always meant to…
Beat my best mate’s time round the Nürburgring on a bike. To be one second adrift on an eight minute, 30 second lap is galling.
10 The best thing about my patch
Thirty-five years in Chelsea and I still learn something new every day - I love discovering a street name I didn’t know or finding a hidden house. Chelsea was never built as an upmarket area and is essentially low-key, but seeing the change in demographic with an influx of stylish Europeans proves that not everyone wants a show-off property, and I like that.
