I have lived and worked in Somerset for most of my adult life and attended Crispin School and Strode College in Street. I have two children, a dog named Liberty and a pony called Charm. I volunteer as a radio presenter on Glastonbury FM and for the Children’s World Charity at Glastonbury Festival. I write and perform stand-up comedy and have collected 100’s of items for an oddities museum, including a set of Houdini’s keys from his stage show.
I began my career as an insurance broker and claims handler and worked for local firm Wells Brokers for 8 years. I then moved into print media working as an advertising sales representative for the mid-Somerset Series of Newspapers. Having bought a couple of run-down houses that needed renovating, I knew I wanted to work in the property industry and became a sales negotiator and then manager for High Street agents Palmer Snell in Glastonbury, in 1994. I remained in High Street agency until 2013 when I began working as an online agent. I studied Communication Studies and Sociology at Strode College.
