Additional Information



I was elected to the council in May 2015.

Born here in Crawley in the mid 70s, I went to St Francis primary, Notre Dame middle and St Wilfrid’s secondary schools. I worked as a residential volunteer for HCPT in Lourdes, France on leaving St Wilfrid’s school, and have been involved in various charity fundraising efforts ever since. More recently, I served on the PTA for St Francis school for several years, and have organised and helped with many fundraisers in Crawley for children’s charities

I am married and we have 4 children, 2 boys with special educational needs, and 2 girls. I most recently worked for a charity in Crawley, DEBRA, who raise money to help those with the genetic condition E.B.

I’ve played guitar throughout my time at school, also playing at the Friary in town for 18 years or so, and now at St Bernadette’s church, Tilgate for the past 12 years.

As a boy I spent most of my school holidays up in Tilgate park, and I still absolutely love the place. I lived in Tilgate for 7 years, having also lived in Southgate and grown up in Northgate.

I feel truly honoured to have been elected a councillor in the town I grew up in.
