Pen Portrait – I joined the British Army straight from school, going on to serve for 5 years in Germany, Northern Ireland and Cyprus. When I left the Army, I worked for the Cleveland Probation Service and completed a law degree at Teesside University and trained as a sniper in the Territorial Army. I went on to join the Royal Air Force as a Aerospace Battle Manager specialising in Space, Ballistic Missile Early Warning and Air Defence. I served for 18 years, leaving at the end of 2016.

I have a long term interest in education having been Head of Training and Standards at RAF Fylingdales for 3 years. More personally, my daughter is a student at Skelton Primary school and I want to be able to help the school with the needs of the children in any way that I can. My experience is broad and varied and hopefully I will be able to add value across most areas.

I am married with 3 children.
