Personal Profile
I was brought up in Ulverston and now live in Dalton with my partner Janice.

I am a freelance musician and community artist and have been doing this for 20 years. I have worked with thousands of members of the community doing this, making music, animations, comics, films and much more. It is a very rewarding way to make a living, if quite different from my first job after leaving school in the shipyard.

I became a Councillor as an extension of my role as a community artist, to help members of the community and to do my bit for the local area. I do all this around being an unpaid carer for Janice who has arthritis.
