I am the vicar of St Peter’s Church, Petersfield and also rector of Buriton. I have lived in Petersfield since 2011years: before that I was vicar of Blackmoor and Whitehill (near Bordon).I was brought up in Dorset and joined the navy after leaving school, but after two years, decided to train for ordination. I have been a school governor of different schools since 2005, and am especially interested in school ethos, curriculum and good governance. I love being involved in schools work, and serve on the Diocesan Board of Education, which looks after all church schools in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
I am married to Hattie, and have four children, two girls and two boys. When I have any spare time, I enjoy woodwork and archery, and spending time with my family.
