I am married to Arlette and we have a daughter Julia who is a tenant in Shirley House.
I was educated in Oxford and gained a degree at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh
My business background is brewing and I finished my 30 year career with Burtonwood Brewery as Production Director at the age of 50.  Following this I set up my own business as a Commercial Finance Consultant, arranging business finance for SMEs.  I retired from this business 2 years ago.
In my spare time I play golf and walk.
