“I'm originally from Huddersfield but now live in Sheffield with my wife Sally.
“I was a traditional blacksmith in Dundee until I got more involved with building restoration at which point I studied Civil Engineering at Abertay University where I graduated with a BSc in 2002. I am currently employed at Billington Structures in Wombwell, Barnsley.
“After working all over as a site engineer I settled back in Yorkshire about 2005 before taking a desk job in 2010.
“I enjoy Yorkshire Beardsmen Meets, spending time in Whitby with my family, flyfishing, reading and listening to Industrial and Heavy Rock; I've been known to like a pint or two as well!”
