I moved with my family to Gagingwell in 1999 and have lived there continuously since then.
Having spent over 30 years in the publishing industry based in the UK and the USA, I now work at Oxford Brookes University where I am a senior lecturer in publishing. I also undertake consultancy work in the publishing industry.
I have been a Parish Councillor in Enstone since 2012. I feel passionately about preserving the quality of the local environment and have a particular interest in environmental and road safety matters. I have been on the organising committee of the annual Enstone Show since 2013.
