What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I design joined-up building services for intelligent buildings. The future will see even more connected devices from companies outside of the traditional controls industry. The spread of consumer IoT devices – and how easily they can be configured – is forcing everyone in construction to up their game. Why can’t we let a building occupant modify their work environment as easily as they can at home? It’s all about the tenant experience.

How do you unwind from a busy day? Watch New York go about its business from a bench in Central Park.

Favorite book or author: John Le Carré

Last song you purchased/downloaded? I have Spotify so (embarrassingly) the last song I actually paid for was “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen!

One word to describe your work environment: Orderly
