I joined the Board of Carr Gomm in 2016, when I retired from my job as a regional organiser with Unite the Union.

When I worked with the Union, one of my areas of responsibility was for Carr Gomm. I was involved in consultation and negotiations on terms and conditions and also sat on the Health and Safety Committee.

My interests are mainly music related. I attend a lot of live gigs and I also sing and play guitar in a couple of bands. I also enjoy reading, cinema and travelling as well as Italian cuisine.

The rest of my time is taken up with three young grandchildren.
