Spending over 7 years in the Grenadier Guards as an Infantry Section Commander I returned from Afghanistan and was given a 2 year posting in my hometown to recruit for the Army. After completing the 2 year posting and seeing it as a natural transition I moved to Aaron Wallis and focussed on Technical Sales recruitment. Specialising in senior level positions for SME’s to major corporates my area of expertise is with technically credible sales professionals and placing them in suitable posts.

A dedicated family man I enjoy spending time with my two daughters after spending a significant amount of time away when in the Army. When not playing the fool with the kids you’ll find me running the back roads of Northampton always trying to beat my personal best which seems to be 6 days a week. Also a keen shot I enjoy clay and game shooting and commit heavily to a local shooting syndicate where I work my Springer Spaniel. Working dogs are a big passion for me and spend many a frustrating day training the Spaniel and being dragged down to the park by my German Shepherd.
