Personal Profile

I am a Geordie living in south-east Leicestershire with my wife and two children. I am an enthusiastic supporter of Gateshead Rugby Club, Newcastle United Football Club and have a passion for motorsport. I enjoy 'tinkering' with cars and am trying to modify a road car for track use. Other interests tend to revolve around entertaining my young family.
