I moved to the island with my family in December 2021 and wanted to get involved in the community straight away. I thought there was no better way than supporting the Cornerstone Federation to deliver great educational outcomes to all the children at the Bay and at Niton. My son attends the Bay Primary School and I have a longstanding personal interest in education outcomes and social mobility. Professionally, I have worked at Parliament for the last fifteen years. I am currently head of research services at the House of Lords. When I am not enjoying the island with my wife and two children, I am usually out running, listening to music or disappointed by Tottenham Hotspur’s latest football result.
