Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I grew up in a sleepy rural village on the Essex / Suffolk border and moved to London in 2014. I was a semi-professional skateboarder in my late teens / early twenties and have worked in the property industry since 2009.
I was an associate director at Savills working in the build to rent space before joining Home Made in April 2021.
While my skateboarding days are behind me, I now get my kicks from making music, middle-distance running, and spending time with my wife and baby boy.
Why Home Made?
I believe the Home Made model to be the necessary update to a widely flawed industry standard. This, coupled with the ambition and values of the people here made joining Home Made a simple choice.
Eight months in and my expectations have been surpassed. The culture is second-to-none and the rate of growth is incredibly exciting.
What makes us unique?
The genuine drive to do what’s best for everyone involved in every transaction.
The sense of team-above self. Everyone here is aligned on values and on the same mission. The camaraderie is like nothing I’ve experienced before.
Favourite area of London and why?
Broadway Market / London Fields / Victoria Park. Love the canal, the creative types you meet, and indie shops, restaurants and cafes. There are some fantastic residential and commercial converted warehouse spaces around there too.
I write and record music and have played in bands over the years. You can check out my current solo work here.
