I live in Northampton with my wife Di, son Charlie who is 6 and our 3 maine coon cats and 6 chickens. We joined UpsnDowns in 2012 while my wife was pregnant with Charlie.

I became a trustee in 2013 and enjoy being part of our wonderful charity

I work as a design engineer in the European Technical Centre for a Japanese pneumatics company, were for the last few years we have celebrated World Down Syndrome day, and raised money for UpsnDowns by wearing our colourful socks
