Having first founded my company in Chippy in 2016, I’ve been living here full time since early 2023. I have a deep connection with Chipping Norton. Performing at a music recital in Chippy School aged 11, paved the way for my career in the music business, recording my first album at Chipping Norton Studios in the mid 90’s.

Since I grew up in and schooled at Henry Box in Witney, I’m almost a local. As a schoolboy, I often competed in sports competitions against Chipping Norton school, as well as Charlbury, Burford and others. My mother has lived here since 2001 and I’ve been visiting the town since then.

I’m currently studying a BSc in Humanistic Counselling, as well as continuing my career as company director of Music Production events/tours. Since joining the town council last May, I’ve also become Chairperson for newly formed Chippy Community Land Trust, A community-led, democratic, non-profit organisation, that owns and develops land for the benefit of the community and protecting community assets in perpetuity.

As a town councillor, I am honoured to represent the town I love. My technical and logistical skills have been a bonus for the events I’ve been involved with so far, including Picnic in the Park, Chippy Pride and the Christmas Lights.

Chipping Norton has a proud tradition as a working market town, and I feel privileged to be involved in the future of Chippy, and to listen to the residents to positively create and build on improving the town for all who live here.

I hope to use my energy, skills, and passion for Chipping Norton to benefit the town and its people, and to help make the town a safer, fairer, and happier community.
