Biography:

 

I was born at Northgate hospital.  My father Jack was a fisherman and involved in the Tourism Industry and my mother Sue was a hairdresser.  I attended Caister High School then Great Yarmouth College on a construction course whilst also attending Gorleston Fire Station as a Fire Cadet until my 18th Birthday.  I married my long term girlfriend Louise in December 2012 and have one daughter.  

I am heavily involved in the tourism industry which allows me to have lots of different employment in the winter months such as SSAF, Security films for windows, Hydro Mac hydraulics, Aqua Zone and Essex and Suffolk Water.

Since becoming a Councillor I have been keen to promote Great Yarmouth's tourism and save Hemsby coastline. 

My spare time is spent looking after my daughter, watching football, films, swimming and relaxing to music.
