Personal profile:

I am married to Louise, a nurse and Health Visitor. We have two young boys trying to be teenagers much too quickly whose sporting and extracurricular activities tend to take up most of our spare time. We are season ticket holders at both Leicester City Football Club and the Leicester Tigers and now have passionate links to these teams! I am the vice-president of a local cricket club but thankfully for all concerned have not tried to play again.

I enjoy all sports, still can play the piano (just about) and have an interest in all types of music but cling mostly to my youthful love of rock.
