Why I’m good at what I do…

Was in the Forces, more medals than the average Chelsea pensioner! Left the forces and joined the Police. Left after 14 years to join Thornbury Collections and now loving the whole 'normal' 9-5 lifestyle! (The normal lifestyle allows me to be more normal!!!!!)

I'm a sports fan and love football in particular.I support Spurs and have followd them all over Europe.

Aside from that I am the Chair for Radyr Rangers Football Club, having been a coach for 10 years. I am a qualified UEFA coach having passed my C licence in 2012. In Dec 2014 I passed my FIFA Referres course.

I am married and have been for ever and have 3 sons. 2 of them are very sporty so I constantly ferry them around various sporting events around S Wales. Hopefully when they are earning a zillion pounds a week they'll remember this.

I'm also the Chairman for The Autism Directory as my oldest son is autistic
