On leaving Sidcot School, I picked up the tools with a leading architectural practice in Bristol as a draughtsman. This was followed by 13 years building up a successful property orientated business in North Somerset and the surrounding area, primarily concentrating on residential new homes and property investment and management, with occasional forays into the office, industrial retail and leisure sectors. During this time I met the Mayor's daughter, Sarah, and we were married in 2002 and are now the very proud parents of two beautiful daughters (I’m not biased)!
I was recruited to Summerfield in 2007 to co-ordinate the Land and Planning supply to the business and have relished the role in these very interesting times. Now Working on various roll across the Property & Development world.
Although now retired from playing rugby I am still a keen supporter and cricket fanatic. I play amateur club tennis, occasional golf and am a PADI diver. It is fair to say that I will 'have a go' at most sports and all to the same appalling standard.
Having been a Strawberry line Governor since its inception I hope I bring a good dose of pragmatism, strategic rational and common sense in our ever more complicated school environment.
