Biographical Details
I was born in 1971 and raised in Edge Hill Liverpool.

I was married to Amanda at Brougham Terrace in 1994 and we have three girls.

We moved to Llandudno with our three children Amy, Danielle and Jennifer in 2002. They all went to Ysgol Ffordd Dyffryn and then on to Ysgol John Bright. Amy went on to university in Chester studying forensic science. Danielle went on to Liverpool University to study Law and Jennifer currently studies drama at Llandrillo.

Mandy and I were frequent visitors to North Wales when we were both growing up. I had two aunties that married two brothers from Llandudno so I spent a lot of my school holidays on the North shore beach (when it had sand). When our girls were growing up we would bring them to Llandudno for their holidays and often just for days and weekends out. It was during one of these weekends we both said we wanted to bring our girls up here so we decided to buy a house here.

I went to Brae street primary school in Edge hill and then onto the collegiate comprehensive school.
When I left school I went to work in Shaw’s bakery in the Kensington area of Liverpool as an apprentice baker. When Shaw’s closed down in 1988 I moved to Llandudno and began work at Bathers bakery on Builder Street. I then went on to work in the greenery on Lloyd Street where I acquired my love for cooking. I also like to spend my time reading or out walking.

I returned to live in Liverpool in 1990 and worked as a market trader and then as a taxi driver.

When Mandy and I decided to move to Llandudno I went to work in Ball and Boyd where I often conducted the auction and had great fun clearing the whole saleroom by not refusing any bid. Wardrobes and beds where often sold for the princely sum of £1.

In 2004 I went on to work for Conwy County Council as a street cleaner and I now currently work on secondment to Unite the Union.

I joined the Town Council in 2012 and I am the current Chair of Governors for Ysgol Ffordd Dyffryn.

My chosen charities for my Mayoral year are Hope Restored, a local homeless charity that is run by Brenda and her great team. Hope Restored does exactly what it says. It restores hope to those who have found themselves in a terrible position. My other chosen charity is Mind the mental health charity. Mind offers support and advice for people who are experiencing a mental health problem.

Two exceptionally worthy charities that both Mandy and I will champion the causes of and try and raise much needed funds for both of them.
