What job would you like to have other than your own?

Fortunately I now know I am in the job I always wanted to do but if I had to choose another it would be an astronomer because of all the unanswered questions of the universe

What is your greatest achievement?

Besides my family I am quite proud of my time spent at Edinburgh Art College and the introduction it gave me to working with the Scottish Sculptor Sir Eduardo Paolozzi

What makes you most annoyed?

Lack of funding in our sector to support and develop the wealth of talented people it employs

What is your biggest mistake?

There have been many, but probably thinking I’m still twenty years younger than I actually am

What do you need to make life complete?

Time to enjoy a gin and tonic and a perfectly striped lawn

Why do you make a difference?

Hopefully my passion for our heritage and sustainability is communicated through everything I do
