I became a community governor at the beginning of 2011 when my daughter was still at Round Hill School.

I work at the University as postgraduate administrator.

I first came to Nottingham in 1992 to study Civil Engineering and after finishing my degree moved to Beeston.  After an eight year stint in London I moved back to Beeston in 2007 with my wife, Helen. Our daughter started at Round Hill in 2015, and in 2016 I was asked to join the governing body as an associate member, becoming a full governor in the Autumn of the same year. My professional background is in structural and civil engineering consultancy and I currently run a practice with my business partners which is based in Beeston.

With my experience in business and expertise in the built environment I hope to help the school with any issues relating to the maintenance and repair of the premises and grounds and to assist with matters relating to general business.
