I was born in a small village in Nottinghamshire back in the 60’s so managed my misspent youth prior to social media.

At 16 I joined the Armed Forces specifically the Royal Artillery, for no other reason than my Father was a Gunner prior to me. I did my full service of around 24 years and left as a Warrant Officer.

On leaving the Forces I worked for a FTSE 100 company leaving them after 17 years as the Facilities Director.
