Originally from Essex I studied Chemical Engineering at Teesside Polytechnic in Middlesbrough. I have worked In Yorkshire, Essex and for the last 22years in Gloucestershire. I have lived in Droitwich for the last 10 years; my wife grew up in Crowle and went to Droitwich High School. I have been involved in local politics since I was in college. I am an enthusiastic cyclist and have an interest in active travel. In my professional life, I am used to working with diverse groups and departments to get problems solved, a skill set I can use to help the constituents of the Littletons.
