I live with my lovely wife (Katie) and spirited son (Felix) in Morden, Surrey; working full-time as a communications consultant at the Fifth Business. I have played sport, particularly hockey and tennis all my life. Cystic Fibrosis has been a huge factor in my life, but not one that overshadows it.
I have always had great support from my loving family – parents Margaret and Douglas, elder brother Chris and my twin brother Jez. I have many rich life insights based on knowing I have a reduced life expectancy and battling against the odds for over 43 years. My eyes and heart have been opened by my health struggle.
My passions include Paul Smith clothes, dress shirts (believing that it’s empowering to dress like it’s your last day on earth), Alfa Romeo cars, spicey food, Harlequins and England rugby, Southampton FC, Wimledon village and common, Dorset, seascapes, sunsets and military history.
I am available for public (inspirational) speaking on this subject matter and can be contacted via timwottonAThotmailDOTcom.
