I am a married man, with three young children. My wife, Heather, is a Practice Nurse in a NHS GP practice.
As a youngster, I spent a considerable amount of time in Sefton making friends and forming a great affection for the area and people of Merseyside. As a consequence, like my father before me, I graduated in Electrical Engineering at The University of Liverpool.
It was while I was a student that I became interested in politics and joined the Conservative Party.
