Hobbies & Interests
With skiing, rugby, paragliding and cycling on his CV, together with a number of related fractures and dislocations, Lawrence is one of our resident action men. He has recently competed in two 100 mile cycling sportives, raising over £1500 as part of a team for SportsAid in the most recent RideLondon (one of the few successful “Olympic Legacies”). His power kiting (think kite surfing but on land) career came to a premature end when stormy conditions saw him sailing over 30ft into the air only to come crashing down and smashing his ankle, resulting in a permanent screw being inserted through his heel to fuse one of the joints in his foot.
A keen traveller, Lawrence once awoke to a pair of M16 Assault Rifle muzzles in his face on a bus in Honduras. Luckily they were held by a pair of local police (dressed in army fatigues), nevertheless they still dragged Lawrence out of the bus for a spot search for drugs. As they unloaded his entire rucksack onto the roadside, images of being thrown into a Central American jail alongside El Chapo flashed through his Xanax-fogged sleepy mind. Needless to say, the search was fruitless and Lawrence was let back on the bus, the sleeping pills soon took over again he was snoring contently as the bus rumbled on.
Lawrence recently founded a “bean to bar” chocolate company, but unfortunately his artisan bars won’t be making it to hip London stores any time soon… A sociable chap, Lawrence can often be found making friends in the kitchen at work. With a healthy appetite, Lawrence will happily eat pretty much anything other than nuts.
