I have lived in Burnham for the last 23 years having married a born and bred Burnham girl with whom I have twin daughters. They attend Burnham Primary school where I have spent time on the PTA, and my wife is Vice Chair of the Governors.

Having moved to Burnham from my home parish of the Waltham’s, just north of Chelmsford, I have adopted Burnham as my home. I currently work for the Environment Agency as a FCRM Officer, covering the Blackwater, Crouch and Thames Estuary.

I spent several years on the RNLI lifeboat team in Burnham, firstly as shore crew and mechanic and then on to full boat crew.

I look forward to the challenges ahead and to working with the other Town Councillors to make Burnham a better place for all.
