I was born and bred in Wolverhampton, with a few years out studying Law in Norwich, and a couple of years working for the Methodist Connexional Team down in London immediately following. In 2001 I returned to Wolverhampton to take up a position with Severn Trent Water where I’m enjoying a varied career which has taken a winding path through digital maps, driving forklifts and diggers and calculating leakage. I’m now in the Technology department where I’m a Senior Business Analyst looking after projects to enhance our use of data. I’ve been involved in Methodism all my life. Growing up at Beckminster, as a young person I went to Questors, I went to London Weekend and Youth Conference, and ended up on the National Youth Executive, and as a rep to Methodist Council. When I returned to Wolverhampton I started to attend Springdale, where I am a Worship Leader, former Steward and occasional Junior Church helper. The more I learn about Methodism and its particular call to social justice, the more I feel called to find ways to use what talents I have practically for the circuit. I’m married to Rachel - also a Questor (proving again that MAYC stands for Marriages Arranged for Young Christians) with 2 boys who are growing up far too quickly. I enjoy getting out for a run, riding my bike, going camping (especially at Greenbelt) and also playing bass, guitar and other instruments.
