Chris Clothier studied Chemistry at New College, Oxford. He spent his youth teaching sailing, racing dinghies and sailing bigger boats across oceans. Much to his disappointment he has turned into a grown-up and got a proper job looking after people's money in the City. He lives in London with his wife and two daughters. Whenever he gets the chance, he sneaks off kitesurfing and looks forward to the day his girls are big enough to go with him.
