When I’m not being an Accountant: 
I live in Wimborne with my wife and two children. Outside of work I can often be found on the sideline’s each weekend watching my son’s football matches or keeping score for his cricket matches for Wimborne Youth teams. I am football fan and follow Liverpool FC, Wimborne Town FC and AFC Bournemouth (in that order!) and try to get to local matches as often as I can. In the summer months we spend our free time aboard our boat exploring Poole Harbour and along the Dorset Coast and Solent with the aim to cross the English Channel in 2018!

I am an FCCA (Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) and a CTA (Member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation).

I joined England & Company in 1998 and after several years moved to a similar sized firm in North Dorset for 2 ½ years, only to return to England & Company in 2005. I was subsequently appointed as Director in 2008.
