Educated at North London grammar school (yes lifelong Arsenal supporter) and university of life. Varied career that has included senior corporate management roles in sales, credit and finance. Later followed by directorships in small companies and running my own small business. Proud of my reputation of being a practical problem solver, across various disciplines, who would take on challenges and get the job done.

Spent five years in France where I ran a small business, assisted some other ex-pat small enterprises and helped start a business networking group – the latter led to being asked to write a monthly business column in an English language paper for eighteen months. Since my return I have operated as a freelance consultant offering advice and support to SMEs.

In earlier years I played a lot of football and later managed/coached adult teams (even qualified as a referee), confined now to spectating but still a sport I really enjoy. Purchased a campervan a couple of years ago (no, not an aged hippy) and an ambition is to use it to take in several stages of the Tour de France – something I became interested in whilst living in France. The team element and the notions of percentage gain in cycling are very relevant to business and many parts of our lives.

Currently single, married twice with three lovely daughters and six grandchildren. Outside of work I have in the past been chair of my youngest daughter’s middle school PTA. Currently I am a voluntary mentor with Sported, a charity helping under-privileged children by supporting sports clubs. Also, voluntary mentor with UAE (University of East Anglia) for business graduates.

Whilst I have always had an interest in politics, the EU referendum was the trigger for me to get involved – I had thought for some time we were in danger of sleepwalking out of Europe, and I got involved in campaigning. The whole Brexit debacle to me has highlighted the current deficit in politics, and the out-dated tribal nature and lack of common sense in UK politics. This is what has drawn me to the Renew Party and I am keen to make a difference.
