I was born and raised in Sunderland where I remained until 2009 when I relocated over the hill to West Boldon where I live with my partner Wendy and daughter Bethany. I left St Aiden’s RC school in 1988 and pursued my chosen career as an industrial refrigeration and air conditioning engineer until 2003. In 2003 I set up HLA Services Ltd with 3 colleagues which I still operate to this day with my business partner Paul Smith.
I have been a member of the board of trustees of Grace House since. I am also on the board of directors of the Balmoral Learning Trust and an active member of the St Aiden’s alumni.
My hobbies include cycling and watching Rugby Union, Cricket and Northern league Football. I am a season ticket holder of 25 years at Sunderland AFC.
