A Sheen resident since 1992, I’m a former Barnes parent, having seen my two boys pass happily and successfully through the school. I’ve sat on the Governing Body since 2003, spending five as Vice Chair. With the Site Manager, I conduct the annual Safe Places review of the school premises. I’m a Chartered Engineer and work as the managing director of a technology company in the broadcast sector so I have a natural interest in the teaching and learning of science and technology at Barnes. When not working, I spend my spare time watching, coaching and refereeing rugby at London Welsh RFC. As a result of participating in a charity rowing trip down the Mississippi River in 2014, I’m a late convert to the sport of skiffing.
