I moved to Salcombe Regis in 2001 after living in Warwickshire for most of my life. I was born in Surrey and educated at Dulwich College. I briefly went to Reading Uni to study agriculture and spent my practical year at Yarcombe. I then worked in IT for my entire life but never lost my love of the countryside and particularly this area. My parents lived here from 1985-2014 and would bring us on holiday here regularly, hence my familiarity with it.

I started my working life in town planning and ended up planning one town for one week of the year as Director of Sidmouth Folk Festival in the 1980s. Since then I have worked in graphics and printing and now lead the SVA’s publications team.

My wife and I haved lived in Sidbury for over twenty years. As a chartered civil engineer, I moved to Devon to help project manage the South West’s Clean Sweep programme to improve the quality of the bathing waters around our coastline. I am an active member of the Sidbury community, and Sid Valley Rotary club of which I am a founder member. We are always stunned by the beauty of the Devon coast and countryside, and particularly the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which we must do all we can to preserve.

A mathematician by training, I have worked in weather forecasting research since leaving university. As well as developing improved prediction methods, my research has encompassed the impacts of weather in many aspects of human life: from aviation and the military to flooding and health, with my current focus being on international disaster reduction. My wife and I moved to Sidmouth twelve years ago, when the Met Office headquarters moved from Bracknell to Exeter. I am a churchwarden at Sidmouth Parish Church, a founder member of the Vision Group for Sidmouth and a member of the Science Festival team. Since arriving in Sidmouth, my interest in local history has grown from researching the origin of a house name to writing books on the Street Names of Sidmouth, on Sidmouth in the First World War, and on the history of the Church.

I moved to Sidmouth from Warwickshire in 2004, having spent many holidays with my parents in law who lived here. My early career was in research of vegetable diseases. After having children, I returned to work in the retail side of horticultural and then most recently, for a large international charity.  I joined the SVA as I have a keen  interest in the ecology and conservation of this beautiful valley. My hobbies (not surprisingly!) are gardening,  gig rowing and walking the many wonderful footpaths in the vale.
