Born in Hull , graduated at Nottingham University and started work at local Newspaper back in Hull in 1984 and spent a career ever since in media with a whole range of main Board positions in UK and Europe. Moved to Devon in 2002 and with the family falling in love with the County continued to live here even though the working demands meant lots of time away.

Has been involved with a number of Charities but is attracted by the aims and ambitions of Young Devon in giving a better chance to those who have had a difficult start in life.

A committed family man with a love of sport, travel and history counts being at Wembley on both occasions when Hull City qualified for the Premiership and in Turin when England last reached a World Cup Semi Final as memorable moments.
