In 1971 I came to Exeter University Law department from Birmingham and stayed ever since! I love Devon and its Coast and Dartmoor. I have lived in Ashburton since 1997.

I worked for many years as a solicitor in Exeter. I am now a licensed conveyancer and probate practitioner providing a personal local legal service to Ashburton, the Moor and the locality.

I am a member of and involved in St Andrew's our local church sitting on the PCC.

I was a founder of Ashburton Arts with our plans for a buzzing Arts Centre and Arts scene in the old Methodist Church.
