Following my ‘A levels’ I joined Lloyds TSB in 1988 at eighteen years old and have been in financial services ever since. In April 2000 I left Lloyds TSB to become an Independent Financial Advisor and have continued to develop, becoming directly registered with the Financial Services Authority in October 2005.
I am a family man who enjoys nothing more than spending time with my wife and sons. I support them in every way I can including being chair of governors at their local school.
In 2008 we completed the building on our house in France and I now try to split our time between France and England.

On leaving school I trained and worked as a nurse and then went back to college and trained as a music teacher to enable me to spend more time with my son after I was widowed in 1989. In 1999 I entered into the Financial Services industry working first in Private Clients with HSBC and then as an Independent Financial Advisor in the Bournemouth area. Being a bit of an examination junkie, I continued working through the professional qualifications and am aiming to become a Chartered Financial Advisor in the near future. I continued exercising my teaching skills and lectured both the entry exams and advanced exams in financial services at Bournemouth and Poole College for six and a half years.
Now living in Manchester, I split my time between looking after my clients in both the Bournemouth and Manchester area and appreciating the Bournemouth beach whenever I can.
I am actively involved in charity work as a Soroptimist (google it to find out more) and as a Trustee of Cementing Futures, a registered charity which provides education to children living in poverty in Bangladesh. As part of my fund-raising endeavours I have cycled Landís End to John O Groatís and in January this year, I successfully climbed Kilimanjaro. I still find time to perform playing oboe, flute and saxophone but I have just handed the running of a 15 piece Bournemouth based swing band which I formed 7 years ago to my lovely son, also a musician.
