My History

Other Interests & Work


I have strong environmental values and I like to volunteer my time or services when I can. I have assisted many community groups over the past 15 years and it continues to be an important part of life. I have also helped many students and people with research projects. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and helping others.

Coaching & Refereeing

When I have time I provide snooker coaching, mostly to juniors or older players who want to improve their skills. I also volunteer my time to referee in 8 ball competitions and have refereed in touch football competitions in the past. I enjoy helping people and I love to see people improving their skills.

Family & Children

I am married with two school age children: Charlie and Asha. My family is a very important part of my life and I really enjoy family time.

Cycling & Fitness

I like to get out on my mountain bike and explore the local area and it’s a great way to keep fit. I race sometimes but mostly I enjoy social rides on weekends with friends. I generally ride a few times a week all year round and also play cricket over summer.
