About Me

Having grown up on the family’s arable farm near Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, I have actively been involved within the family business since a young age. We farm just over 2,000 acres of combinable crops and provide a potato cold storage facility.

In 2004, the family business undertook a major diversification project and started recycling farm plastic waste.  Agri-Cycle Ltd  consists of a national network of franchises collecting farm plastic waste and spent shot gun cartridges which are recycled into usable products, such as grain flooring and garden furniture.

After completing secondary education, I attended Newcastle University to study Architecture, where I gained a BA(Hons). Whilst I decided not to progress with a vocation in this subject, the course enabled me to thrive from the challenge of problem solving.

In early 2009, I joined George F White LLP, a rural surveying and farm business consultancy firm based within the North East.   After completing a post graduate diploma in rural surveying and gaining a distinction, I was able to progress and become a fully qualified Chartered Surveyor. I have also been awarded Fellowship of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV). In my role at George F White LLP, I currently provide professional advice principally covering landlord and tenant matters, farm business consultancy, compensation, valuations and rural asset portfolio management.   I really enjoy assisting clients on how best they can manage, protect, advance or enhance their asset base.

I sit on the Committee of the Northumbria and Cumbria Branch of the CAAV with a specific remit for education and training of probationary members.

When I am not in the office, I really enjoy the outdoors – especially when its coupled with a challenge. I am also a very keen member of the Conservative Party.
