Born in Yorkshire, I lived with my parents and brother until we relocated to Poole in Dorset in 1962. After leaving home at the age of eighteen, I lived in numerous locations throughout England and Wales and holidayed abroad frequently.
Education-wise, I studied at Plymouth and York universities and my working career has always been in communications. Over the past twenty years I have owned and run a small letting and property management business near Exeter.
Relaxation-wise, I love reading, gardening and dancing and whilst living in Devon was a founding member of a Morris dancing team.
