I live with my wife of 11 years and two children, Jackson (14) and Robson (11). In my spare time, I enjoy watching and/or taking part in MMA/Kickboxing/Boxing, pool/snooker, poker, football and hiking.

In July 2018 I undertook and completed the National 3 Peaks Challenge, summiting the highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales in under 24 hours; raising over £1,000 for the National Autistic Society.

In 2022, I was lucky enough to win a competition that presented me with the once in a lifetime opportunity to play at the Theatre of Dreams – Old Trafford; home of my favourite football team, Manchester United.

I was listed as one of ‘The Most Influential CISOs of the Year 2024’ by The CIO World magazine.
