I was born in Fulwood in 1958, and brought up in Ecclesall.
I am an engineer and, after a time living in Asia, Europe and London, working for engineering companies, I returned to Sheffield in 1992 to take over the family business, Rotary Electrical – still running today as Rotary Engineering and Rotary Electrical Services, exporting to over 60 countries.
I have worked hard to help reduce health inequalities and reduce the number of mixed sex wards in Yorkshire hospitals.
I am a keen sailor, enjoy watching Rugby (but my playing days are now over!). I can often be seen cycling (slowly) through Whiteley Woods to the Mayfield Valley. I have also been known to try my hand a rock climbing at Stannage (but usually need a hand up).
I am a member of a local church (Ecclesall) and a member of its Church Council and have led groups from there to other countries including India.
