Personal Interests

Dr Reid enjoys boating, hosting fabulous parties, planning home renovations and trips to the outback.  He is a keen traveller, art collector and connoisseur of food and wine but finds equal satisfaction in curling up with a good book.  In bygone eras Dr Reid has been known to devote large amounts of time to home handymanship and piloting a light aircraft.  His overriding passion is of course his family (in close competition with his BMW).
