Tell us a bit about you

I live in Alnwick with my partner and daughter. I enjoy live music, going to the cinema and exploring the countryside. I don’t go to the gym as much as I should, but I do try to swim a few times each week to keep active.

Tell us a bit about your career

I’ve spent most of my career as a Chartered Accountant in industry, sectors I have experience in include motor trade, manufacturing, e-commerce and pharmacy. I have sat as a board member for several years helping businesses improve their processes, systems and ultimately their financial performance.

Recently I have diversified my skills by completing a further degree in IT and Data Science. I applied both disciplines by delivering insightful Business Intelligence systems for clients for a large regional firm of accountants which helped transform client’s view on their data and provided them with clear and informative insight which drove business improvements.

I joined NCFE in August 2021 where I am Head of Financial Insight and Reporting.


Education has helped to transform my life on two separate occasions, once in the traditional timeline of school, college and university, and then later in life when I wanted to change career direction and try something completely new.

I believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn something new, no matter what age they may be. NCFE’s core purpose of delivering high-quality learning experiences is something I enjoy being part of.
