I have lived in Silksworth all of my life and have attended New Silksworth Infant and Junior Schools before moving over to Farringdon School for my secondary education.  I have been a school governor for over 20 years most recently at New Silksworth Infants and Venerable Bede C of E Academy.  I am the current chair of New Silksworth Academy Local Governing Body, a director of Extol Academy Trust and the chair of its standards committee.

My full time occupation is as an Operations Manager for a large manufacturing/Construction Company in the region.  My remit is to cover all operational matters for the business but predominantly our work is in the North East and Yorkshire Regions.  In addition to this I am also a director at Gentoo and sit on the main group board.  Previous to that I sat on the Gentoo Sunderland Board between 2007 and 2008.

I was elected as a Ward Councillor for Silksworth in May 2006.  I have held a number of internal and external appointments since that date including Chairman of Sunderland South Area Committee, Chairman of Planning and Highways, Chairman of the Sunderland West Place Board and Vice Chairman of Sunderland West Area Committee.

 I am a Chartered Member of IOSH (Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) and I am a previous chairman and secretary of the Tyne and Wear Branch.

As well as my full time employment and my role as a councillor for Silksworth Ward I am the Chair of a local charity Youth Almighty Project (YAP), I volunteer at least three nights a week as well as maintaining the website www.youthalmighty.co.uk.

My work with youth almighty involves a wide variety of tasks; I chair the management committee which is the umbrella organisation as well as sitting on a number of sub committees which include Silksworth Colliery Welfare, Silksworth Youth and Community Centre, Plains Farm Youth and Community Centre and Farringdon Youth and Community Centre.

I lead and manage sessions, plan activities and act as the organisations Designated Safeguarding Lead. I assist the full time project manager with the organisation's policies and procedures and offer HR and H&S advice to the organisation and its 23 members of staff.

My Ward Surgery is the first Saturday of every month between 11.00 am and 12.00 noon at Silksworth Youth and Community Centre, Tunstall Village Road, Silksworth, Sunderland, SR3 2BB.
