I was originally elected as a ward member for the Bere Ferrers ward and served in this role from 1991 till 1995, again being elected in 2007 and re-elected in 2011 and 2015.

I have worked in business for 30 years in the information technology sector in various management and technical roles.  After a change of career I qualified as a teacher and for the last five years before my retirement I worked in a special school teaching young people with special educational needs.

I have worked with young people throughout my adult life in a voluntary capacity and have been particularly involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the Tavistock and District Youth Forum.  My wife and I also are involved and provide respite fostering.

I have a particular interest in sport and am a member of the Tavistock Athletic Club, the Weir Quay Sailing Club and the Tamar & Tavy Gig Club.  For many years I have coached young athletes in the Athletic Club.
