I qualified as a solicitor in July 2001 and worked for two other Wiltshire firms before joining Bevirs in 2010, specialising in the Homemove residential conveyancing department.
Before entering the legal profession, I served for 22 years with the Royal Air Force as a policeman and criminal investigator.
My academic qualifications are BA (Hons) Open University in Social Sciences, a post graduate diploma in Criminology and Prison Studies, plus LLB (Hons) in Law and post graduate studies in Legal Practice.
I am married to Alison, the head of faculty in drama at the Clarendon Academy in Trowbridge, and we live in Corsham. We are members of the Sealed Knot Society, who re-enact battles of the English Civil War for charity in Wiltshire and further afield.
I am also a Rotarian and enjoy helping with local charitable works.
