He is currently studying for an MBA in higher education management at the University of London, and is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.  When not at work, he enjoys most sports (but especially rugby, cricket and football), literature, fashion and watching the TV.  He regularly goes to the gym, although you could not tell this by looking at him.
