My previous roles have included working as Head of P.E. at St. Edward’s school (Reading) and Head Coach at Wychwoods Tennis Club. I still continue to play competitive tennis and have enjoyed being Captain of the Wychwoods Mens ‘A’ Team for some time now. In my spare time I always look forward to spending time with my wife Rachel and my son Thomas.
