I started work in the City of London as a broker in 1984, before moving to Hong Kong in 1993 to establish the business in Asia. Since leaving the city in 2002, I have managed of a firm of solicitors before finally moving into the veterinary world in 2007. In 2016, I was elected to the board of the Veterinary Management Group (VMG) an organisation I am immensely proud to represent.

I am keen on music, travel, golf, fly- fishing, horse racing and all countryside and conservation matters. I am a Supervising Steward for Glastonbury Festival, running a team of 275 volunteers. I have also volunteered for disaster recovery programs in flood areas in the UK and Serbia.
