I have lived in Rotherham all my life. I started school at Ferham Road Infant & Junior School then went on to South Grove Secondary School.
I began my working life in the Sheffield steel industry where I trained as a mechanical engineer and obtained a MA. in Mechanical Engineering.

I am particularly supportive of our armed forces and have a son currently serving in the British Army.
“I know the local issues facing us all at this time and have gone through the trauma that losing one’s job brings. I am a local man and feel passionate about local issues that affect us all.
“I was an Independent councillor for two years, representing Rotherham West Ward and in that time I championed tackling anti-social behaviour in the ward with much success.
“I also helped many local groups with their fundraising, including being at Starting of the Meadows Community Group, and played a leading part in supporting the West Central Partnership, I helped to secure over £1m funding for Bradgate Park.
“I am a very outspoken individual, who is well known for voicing the opinions and representing the issues and concerns of local people, and believes in Simple Common Sense Policy’s”
