I am a Chartered Engineering Geologist working in the construction industry and have broad experience of construction related issues. I have also worked in areas of planning and environmental permitting.

My wife and I moved to Cottenham in 1996 and we have brought our two children up in the village, both of whom attended Ladybirds, CPC and CVC. My son went to Oxford and my daughter is currently at Hills Road. With my children having grown up it seemed like a good time to give something back to the village that has looked after us so well over the last 20yrs. Having attended a number of Parish Council meetings over the last year or so, it occurred to me that my knowledge and experience could be of use when dealing with issues such as the Waterbeach Incinerator and other construction related issues. I also have a strong interest in Mental Health issues and my wife is currently on the supervisory board of the Ida Darwin Centre.

I am also the proud owner of a not very successful allotment, but this year after 5 years of careful tending, I have finally got a crop of Asparagus that is actually worth eating.
