I became a parish councilor in 2017 but have lived in Gamston since 1995.
I left school at 16 joining the Royal Navy as an electrician, working on both surface ships and submarines.
I also worked in the North Sea Oil Industry for a short period before joining the Police in 1981, where I remained for the next 30 years in a variety of uniform and plain clothes roles.
In 2011 I became a support staff member for the Metropolitan Police providing expert evidence in criminal trials.
I now work from home, but am semi retired.
