I left Ireland for 18 months to see the world and worked in Christchurch NZ on the famous art gallery as the mechanical PM for managing the HVAC installations. It was nearing project completion that I met my wife who persuaded me to come to London which was in 2003. I spent seven years as a TSM with a competitor before joining BW in 2010.
