Although born in Sheffield, my childhood was spent in North Wales. As the years progressed I completed work placements at the House of Commons, Hat Trick Productions, various legal firms and BBC Wales. I completed a 2:1 law degree at Durham University.
I first became fascinated with property when my parents moved house in 2002. After leaving Durham I pursued a career in estate agency in Cheshire and now lead the office of Gascoigne Halman in Tarporley, Cheshire. My other interests are varied: I was Chairman of Crewe YMCA for ten years and have pioneered an innovative form of Church, know as Church@28. I love eating out, listening to music, learning the piano and playing squash and have been an avid Manchester United fan since I was five years old.
