‘I played acoustic for a long time. These days, I strum a guitar every now and then, often not so well. To keep up my creative side I write short film scripts. At the moment I’m collaborating on a comedy web series with a colleague!
‘I manage pricing issues and oversee the regulatory modelling. We've just completed a price review. Although I work a lot with numbers, you can be creative at the commission. When I was new here, I made two fun videos on water price regulation!
