John is a former Warwickshire County Cricket Club junior team member and, whilst he still enjoys watching cricket, he no longer plays. John is an avid rock climber, skier, mountain biker and rambler and spends a lot of time undertaking these pursuits with his wife, children and friends. When not in the mountains, he loves to work out either at the gym or at home. John is a keen traveller and loves to explore new places and get off the beaten track. He has a keen interest in current affairs, politics and economics and loves to read a good novel. Sometimes he even sits still long enough to watch a movie with his family!
