My son started in Reception at Snarestone in 2017, so has some years left as a Snarestone pupil, and I am looking forward to playing a part in the development of the school during that time. I am an IT consultant having worked mainly in the aviation and retail sectors, both in the UK and overseas. I have been a trustee of several educational charities since 2000, which I hope will be useful in my role as a parent governor. I spend some of my spare time involved in motor sport, and my career in aviation has left a passion for travelling, and I have been lucky enough to visit more than 75 countries around the world so far.

When my first daughter joined Ashby CE Primary School in 1997, I quickly found myself on the PTA, becoming Chair in due course. Joining the Governors followed, as did the position of Chair, which I am still proud to hold. As part of a 'portfolio career', I now Clerk three Leicestershire schools and provide specific support to others when asked. I successfully completed the National Clerks' Development Programme in 2016. I also train governors for LCC with a focus on , governance. In my 'spare' time, I travel with my wife, run for the Ivanhoe Runners and manage local woodland as a Founder Member of the Heartwood Community Woodfuel Group.
