I grew up in Harlow and attended Purford Green School and Brays Grove Comprehensive. After leaving school, I went to work for a local printing firm and for the last twenty years, have run my own printing business.
Married for over forty years, my wife and I have a lovely daughter and beautiful granddaughter.
I am avid sports fan and as well as being actively involved in local politics. Whilst serving as a councillor in Harlow, I was approached by the Local Government Association about becoming a governor at Passmores. I am now a member of the Advisory Board and Passmores Local Governing Body with responsibility for health and safety. I also attend various events at the school and feel it is important to support staff as well as students. I very much enjoy contributing to the improvement of Passmores and being part of this excellent school.
