Current term of office: 25.08.21-24.08.24 

I am married to Lucy, a secondary trained teacher, and we have three young children, two of whom attend St James’ CoE Primary School.  

My favourite subjects at school were Economics and Spanish which I went on to study at university. I spent 5 years working in financial services in London before a change of direction in 2012 when Lucy and I moved to Spain. We worked for the Christian student movement in universities in northern Spain and decided to commit to full-time Christian ministry in the long term. We returned to London in 2014 where I studied Theology and then moved to Tunbridge Wells in 2017 where I became Assistant Minister of St Peter’s Church. 

I have very much enjoyed getting to know pupils and staff over the past 4 years through my involvement in assemblies and church services at Harvest, Christmas and Easter. I look forward to serving the school in new ways as a foundation governor.  

As a family, we enjoy park trips, bike rides and going to the seaside together. I am keen on all kinds of music and enjoy numerous sports from football and tennis to snooker and snowboarding.
