Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

Neither – I am a Mod.

I wanted to play for Man Utd. Then at 15 I realised that wasn’t going to happen.

What will be the greatest challenge facing the bridging finance industry in the coming months?

Lenders & Valuers standing their ground and not shaking like a new born puppy before that thing next year.

Not as much as I used to.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

My nose. I recently broke it.
