Joined Playdale: 2023

About me:

I was born in Bath, Somerset, and spent a portion of my early years in the charming town of Frome. Both my brother and I developed a keen interest in Ice Hockey, prompting our parents to make the decision to relocate our family to Swindon, which had the nearest Ice Rink. As the years went by, I had the opportunity to represent the England National Team in this sport for several years. Currently, I still reside in the Swindon area with my fiancée, two children, one dog, and two cats. I consider myself a passionate food enthusiast and often plan my travels around the restaurants I would love to experience, whether it’s during weekends or trips abroad.

Best thing about my job:

I take pleasure in meeting individuals and learning about their unique life paths. There’s an exhilarating energy I experience when collaborating with others to envision their ideal adventure playground. As a parent of two young children, witnessing the joy and excitement they find during our trips to the park fuels my desire to create the same experience for every child.

Favourite playground:

The Wootton Memorial Field play area in the village of Wootton that sits by the River Glyme about two miles north of Woodstock in Oxfordshire. There is a variety of play equipment at the site for all ages and abilities…something for everyone & plenty of it!
