Curriculum vitae

I have been a Three Rivers councillor for Abbots Langley since 1994, and I was also a parish councillor from 1991 to 1995. I have been an active Liberal Democrat since joining the Young Liberals when still at school in 1981.

I was born in Derbyshire but brought up in Watford and I moved to Abbots Langley in 1989. I now live in Kindersley Way with my wife Sara (also a councillor!) and our daughter Harriet.

I am currently Vice-chairman of the Council's Policy and Resources Committee and have particular responsibility for Finance and Resources. 

I work as Finance Director for the UK/Ireland subsidiary of a worldwide medical equipment group that makes life-support equipment. I have previously worked for organisations in both the private and voluntary sectors, always in a finance/accounting role.
