Associate director at developer, CNM Estates, James Robson, reveals to Sitematch UK what makes him tick outside the world of development.
1) If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go and why?
Brazil – there are lots of up and coming developments. It is a country really on the move, as well as there being lots of beaches and a good climate!
The bright lights of Sao Paulo. The city was formed during the 20th century, growing steadily from village to metropolis
2) What is your most memorable sporting moment?
Johnny Wilkinson kicking the drop goal for the world cup final and Man City winning the title on final day in extra time. I support Newcastle though!
3) Which book or film has had the biggest influence on your life and why?
The Great Gatsby. It's all about judging things finely!
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby: "He must have felt that he had lost the old warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream. He must have looked up at an unfamiliar sky through frightening leaves and shivered as he found what a grotesque thing a rose is and how raw the sunlight was upon the scarcely created grass. A new world, material without being real, where poor ghosts, breathing dreams like air, drifted fortuitously about...like that ashen, fantastic figure gliding toward him through the amorphous trees."
