Born and educated in North-West London, I have lived in Lytham St. Annes since 1986. I had a number of different jobs including being self-employed, working for the DWP for many years in London and Leicester, and working as a senior IT Consultant and Project Manager from 1980 until my retirement in 2013. 

Since retirement I have done various kinds of voluntary work and, in addition to being a Trustee of n-compass, I am Chair of the Blackpool registered charity New Comfort Zone that helps homeless and disadvantaged people. My interests include documenting the history of the merchant navy, genealogy, walking with my dogs, gardening, caravanning, photography and travelling.
