I have been a Cllr since 2020 and I am a former Vice Chair of Gurnard parish council, I believe that its important to take pride in your local community and I am passionate about improving Gurnard as a place to live and work for everyone and also supporting initiatives to preserve what it is that makes Gurnard such a special place. I am married with no children and have lived in Gurnard since 2019, for my day job I am a programme Director for Telecommunication company and in my leisure time l enjoy most things relating to water i.e Sailing, Scuba Diving, walking and photography. I am a regional activity assessor for the Scout Association as well as a RYA Senior Dinghy and Advanced Powerboat Instructor, PADI Diving instructor, BCU Canoeing instructor and a Mountaineering and hillwalking coach.
