I have lived in Lewes all of my life and couldn’t imagine a better place to be with my family.

My first school was South Malling and then I went onto Priory before going to BHASVIC and finally Swansea University to study English & Ancient History.

After university I worked at Harveys Brewery and then fell into the pub trade. First as assistant manager at the Pelham Arms and then the Elephant and Castle, which I now (for the time being) own with my wife.

In 2016 I decided to run in the Castle Ward By Election and was successful at the first attempt (with the help of friends and family).

I ran for, and will continue, as an Independent Councillor. I believe that local politics should reflect the needs of local people and not be beholden to Party politics
