Favourite part of my job

The satisfaction that comes from incidents where people are rescued from life threatening situations.

Hobbies and interests

Keeping fit by boxing, circuit training and playing football. Before I joined the fire and rescue service I played football at a high level, just below the football league.

Interesting Fact

I am a published author.


“In terms of my lifestyle, I’m a stereotypical firefighter – extremely fit with a good diet, selfless, disciplined and courageous. I was honoured to work in Equalities and Recruitment over a decade ago. This seconded role gave me an invaluable opportunity to mentor recruits as the liaison officer, and encourage people from multi cultural and racial backgrounds to join the fire service.”
