Originally from Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire now living in Wellingborough. I joined the Royal Navy as an Apprentice when I left school after A-Levels and served for 12 years. My last ship was HMS Ark Royal where I was the Chief of the Weapon Computer Section. During my time in the Navy I met my wife Paula and we were married in Sri Lanka in March 2000. We originally moved to a flat in Northampton but now have a house in Wellingborough which is great as it is closer to Santa Pod. I work as a photographer taking photos of the drag racing and drifting at Pod. This keeps me pretty busy and in 2012 I was there for a total of 105 days taking photos. I am a big car fan and have an MX5 that I have recently purchased to use at Drift What Ya Brung (DWYB) days.
