Conservative Councillor for Bicknacre and East and West Hanningfield Ward
From an early age I have been involved with Council elections, political campaigning and leafleting. I have been involved in many different levels of politics, from MP and MEPs right down to Parish and District elections.
I am a Building Surveyor by trade, qualifying from Anglia Ruskin University, moving on to work for various public and private sector companies throughout Essex and London. I specialise in Energy Services, focusing on work from gas and electric procurement to value engineering and sustainable development. Central to this role is the need to help companies save money, and reduce wastage. This mindset is something I hope to transfer to Chelmsford Council, and help enhance the great work that has been done already to make a more efficient, value for money Council.
I am a firm believer in change and improvement in my local community. Having grown up in the country side, I hold a personal understanding of the importance of rural village life and the need to support local communities and businesses. I have seen first-hand how planning applications, development and infrastructure can change the landscape we have grown up with.
In my spare time, I enjoy walking in the Countryside, fishing at Hanningfield Reservoir and competing in Sunday League Football.
