Education

Weston Favell Prep School, Spratton Hall, Wellingborough School and then Exeter University where I studied Geography.

Occupation/Career

Since 2001, I have worked for Novacroft (a local software solution company). I've seen the company grow from 15 people in a barn conversion in Pitsford to 200 working in an office in the Lakes and have held a variety of technical roles to do with software and hardware. In 2014 I took on the role of Solutions Manager and I'm responsible for our business analysis team.

Personal circumstances

I was born in Northampton and grew up in Cogenhoe. I moved away to Exeter for three years and then returned to Cogenhoe in 2001 with my partner, now wife, Tracey. We now have a daughter who attends the local school and a young son.

Background

My family has owned property in Church Street since the 1920s and I have a renewed love for the village since having children and gaining an appreciation for how lucky we are to live in a quiet rural location. My paternal grandparents lived near Brixham in Devon and I have a real affinity with the westcountry.

Interests

I used to be a very keen surfer/body boarder and mountain biker, but living close to the geographical centre of the country means that the surfing has suffered in recent years.

I have been fortunate enough to travel around the world for 9 months with my wife as well as driving 10,000 miles around the USA and Canada, driving from Seattle to San Francisco and driving around Europe.

My dad lives in Cape Town, so we have also been to South Africa several times.

I'm a Saints follower (I think 'fan' would be too strong!) and also enjoy playing badminton.

Why I joined the Council

I have strong ties to the village and wanted the opportunity to contribute. I'm hoping that I may be able to represent the views, opinions and ideas of many of the residents who have young children.
