I like swimming and working out in the gym, I enjoy DIY and restoring classic cars and anything mechanical. I enjoy wood work and creating new things that my wife has designed or something she likes the look of – anything from furniture to kids playhouses! I enjoy helping people so I’m often called on to do DIY or fix cars. I am also a big animal lover, we have a cat called Jess that I recused 2 years ago to my wife’s delight. I have never really followed fashion, more I like nice clothes that make me feel good. Every few months my wife and I go shopping to overhaul my wardrobe – she calls these “dress up Ken days”. I am a dad to two young children, James is 6 and Lauren is 4 – they keep me on my toes but they are both at great ages and it’s much more fun now they’re out of the baby stage.
I am an engineer by trade, both mechanical and electrical and I’m employed as a maintenance engineer for heavy plant machinery. I like working as part of a team, we have a good laugh and lots of banter. I am not one for big crowds, I can actually be quite shy but once I know people or get more comfortable in my surroundings I come out of myself and I’m quite playful – I love practical jokes. I enjoy listening to people’s stories and learning new things but I’m not much of a reader though!
I love travelling, my wife and I travelled as much as we could before we had the kids and we are planning lots of trips to do once they’re older – the list is long!
I can be a very private person and I’m happy in my own skin so apart from being with my family my favourite place to spend time is in my garage either restoring my classic mini or just tinkering about.
