Very happily married to Rachel who is truly my soul-mate. We have two lovely daughters and two horses; one retired and the other very active and regularly ridden by Rachel.

  • Soon, I will update with more information



My interests are quite diverse:

  • Practical subjects including carpentry, welding and construction.
  • Food and drink We love food and to go with it - good wine when we can afford it.
  • Sailing When possible, I love to sail, otherwise it's skiing.


key life stages

I've lived a varied life:

  • Research Chemist
My first job was an amazing opportunity; to be given a laboratory to work on polymers.
  • Product Management
Taking the subject of plastics from tech support through to product management and sales.
  • Challenging Projects
If it was difficult - then I wanted to do it!
