BioI have been a councillor at WWPC for 7 years, and chair for 6 of those years. I joined the council to use whatever skills I had to help to maintain and develop the great community we live in. My career was in project management, commercial bidding, and defence systems engineering. I have worked in many parts of the world and at the end of my career I taught profession skills across Europe, Australia, South America, the Middle East and India. I spend 9 years as Managing Director of a systems consultancy and was the CEO of my professional association.

In addition to my work with the council my hobbies include oil painting (mostly portraits), gardening, and DIY. In 2018 I retired from the Crowthorne Carnival committee where I was chair for 12 years.

I have lived locally since 1969 and in Crowthorne for 32 years. I have been married for 52 years and have two children, four grandchildren, and other family members living locally. I have recently purchased an all-electric car.
