Philip is just an all round nice guy. He loves entertaining and takes his pleasure from creating that wow moment for others. Even our movie nights eventually turned into themed evenings of hors d’oeuvres, roulette table, formal cocktail attire for that latest Bond film!!
He started out as an apprentice at Rolls-Royce Bentley moving into the area of software mechanical integration. He developed to be a project manager for custom and one off Bentleys and was liaison with the American company ASC, a soft-top, sunroof and show-car producer. So good was he that ASC grabbed him for their own, off to sunny Detroit he went to be the best project manager of show cars and concept cars they had ever had.
So what next??….After 4 years of go!go!go!go!…(bless the yanks for their desperate need to work!) …The boys decided to head for new pastures. ‘Let’s move to Greece’ …’I second that’….so we moved to the beautiful island of Samos.
Long story short, we renovated an old crumbling Ottoman house into a really cool modern/old home. And then sold it. NEXT!…. renovated a few more houses in the UK…. did an amazing million pound refurb on a 17th century town house in Spitalfields, London whist also building a successful website design business.
Add to all this Philip is a top notch plumber, electrician, tiler, joiner and bloody good baker . (But we didn’t need those skills)….he is also and amazing electro mechanical, software programming and electronics engineer, with a love of automata….. So they came in handy.
