Away from work

Away from work Steve relaxes though fell-walking and travel, with a soft spot for the French Riviera. Whether at home or abroad, he enjoys eating out with his wife, and spending time with his son and daughter – both data scientists – which makes for interesting conversations during dinner!  When at home, Steve also enjoys gardening, reading and likes to watch football, championing Bradford City Football Club.
