Favourite part of my job

The people I work with and the variation of incidents.

Hobbies and interests

My family - being a good dad and a good partner is the most important thing to me. I really enjoy boxing ,taking part and watching it. I’ve always been a football fan too. I support Bradford City.

Interesting Fact

I have competed in boxing at the World Firefighter Games in Australia in 2012.


“I work the day crew system which means being turned out to station to incidents from home throughout the night. My shift pattern enables me to spend plenty of time with my son. The tasks we get involved in are so varied – house fires get your pulse racing while road traffic collisions require a good technical response – but everything is so rewarding. No matter what, whenever you help someone it gives you a sense of pride and purpose.”
