Q: Where are you from and where do you live now?


A: I was original born and raised in Wolverhampton and moved to Cornwall in 2015. I currently live in the Newquay area with my wife and 2 cats.


Q: How did you hear about Green Light ?


A: Word of mouth


Q: Why did you decide to work for Green Light ?


A: I was looking for a supportive organisation who value their staff. I was also seeking a good work life balance. Green Light ticked all the boxes and their CQC reports demonstrated their commitment to quality care


Q: What is your previous experience of autism or learning disabilities?


A: 5 years with another care provider for people with autism locally. I also worked as a teacher for a number of years whilst living in the Midlands


Q: Do you have any special skills/hobbies or interests?


A: I practice Karate, which is my main interest at the moment, and hope to achieve my black belt with hard work and dedication. I also surf. I am a keen cook (being an ex chef) and take an interest in nutrition related to sport.


Q: When not working what are you most likely to be doing?


A: Practicing Karate, in the gym or having a swim. I may also be attempting to play the guitar (badly) or walking the coast path. Of course if the waves are good, I may be in the sea!


Q: What do you have on your bucket list?


A: Visit Japan would be number one on the list (I would like to see what a ‘real’ dojo is like). Living in Cornwall was top of my list for a number of years, but that’s ticked off now 🙂


Q: Who is your hero or heroine & why?


A: Kelly Slater (surfer) who at 50 years old is still mixing it up with the best in the world. He is a shining example that age is just a number!


Q: What three words sum up your personality?


A: Fun-loving, conscientious, loyal
