Biography:

Early Life and Personal Background

Born in Havant in 1971 and later relocating to Windsor & Maidenhead during my childhood and now for over 16 years in Westhampnett, West Sussex, I have navigated life's challenges with resilience and determination. The untimely death of my father from heart complications profoundly impacted me, instilling a deep understanding of the struggles families endure—economically, socially, and emotionally. This personal history is the cornerstone of my empathy and commitment to public service.

Education and Sports Achievements

I earned a BSc (Hons), but like many boys, I was not overly academically inclined. Instead, I excelled in sports, representing England and Great Britain in Tae Kwon Do during my late teens and early twenties. The discipline, integrity, and perseverance learned through sports have guided my approach to life and politics. While I am not formally religious, I value the spiritual journey and the principles of Christian values, emphasizing the importance of a moral compass in governance.

Professional Background and Family Life

Currently, I am the founder and shareholder of a small technology company. My career spans roles in technology strategy, innovation, product development, sales, and marketing within the aviation industry, and I hold several patents despite not being a formal engineer. Married for 15 years with a daughter, and living in Westhampnett, I am intimately aware of the daily challenges faced by families, from financial struggles to balancing work and family life.

Core Beliefs and Values

I am driven by facts, science, and data in making decisions and shaping policies. I envision a country that serves all its people, not just the elite. I firmly believe in the principles of fair play, honesty, and hard work, and that these should be duly rewarded. I advocate for a smaller state that provides a safety net for those in need. Freedom of speech is a cornerstone of our western democracies, and I am deeply concerned about its erosion. I believe in forgiveness, understanding, and the value of perseverance.

Political Vision and Commitment

Aligned with the Reform UK contract with the British people, I pledge to restore trust in politics with transparent, accountable leadership and to champion the reform of public services to ensure efficiency and responsiveness to citizens' needs. Recognizing the transformative potential and challenges of artificial intelligence and robotics, I advocate for policies that protect jobs while fostering innovation, ensuring that the benefits of technological advancements enhance the lives of all, not just the few.

My Pledge:

  • Commitment to Facts and Science: Decisions will be grounded in evidence and data.
  • Equity and Fairness: Ensuring a level playing field for all citizens.
  • Support for Hard Work: Recognizing and rewarding diligence and perseverance.
  • Smaller State, Stronger Safety Net: Advocating for a reduced governmental footprint with robust support for those in need.
  • Freedom of Speech: Defending and restoring our fundamental right to free expression.
  • Understanding and Forgiveness: Promoting a culture of empathy and resilience.
  • Technological Innovation: Fostering advancements in AI and robotics while protecting jobs.
  • Honest Governance: Prioritizing public interest over oligarchies and large corporations.
  • Championing Meritocracy and Equal Opportunity: 

My campaign is a call to action for a government that values liberty, fosters a dynamic economy, and ensures the well-being and prosperity of every citizen. With a vision deeply aligned with Reform UK's commitment to democracy, freedom, and fairness, I am dedicated to shaping a future that honours the contract with the British people, ensuring a society that is fair, free, and full of opportunity
