I have lived, studied and worked in Derbyshire and South Yorkshire all my life. Born in Chesterfield, I went to school at Mount St Mary’s College in Spinkhill, a small village near Killamarsh.
I studied for a degree in urban land valuation at Sheffield Hallam University and then, whilst making my mind which career path to follow, I took up a ‘temporary’ position helping out a mortgage broker friend: I was hooked!
I love the buzz which comes from finding exactly the right mortgage for customers. Buying a property remains one of life’s biggest decisions, and it’s a rare privilege to play a part in helping people realise their hopes and aspirations.
Outside work, my main love has been sport. I represented Derbyshire at rugby from the age of 14 right through to senior men’s level. I have now seen sense and switched to the more sedate game of golf. Competitive as ever, however, I play off single figures.
I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be able to live in the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District, and hope that I can help you secure your dream home too.
