Area Manager - East Midlands


Joined Playdale


About me:

I was born and raised in Leicester and have now returned there after living and working in Houston, Texas for eight years. During my time in Texas, I was privileged to work with athletes aged from 5 to 19 years. One of the many reasons for wanting to join Playdale was to be able to work to benefit children’s health, happiness and well-being again.

Now living in Leicester with my wife and young son, my passions are very much my family and football. During my free time, I enjoy being with my family, watching football and attempting to keep fit! I will be participating in the Leicester Half Marathon in October 2018 – ten years after doing it for the first time!

Best thing about my job:

Working for a leading playground company is extremely rewarding in itself, however, the best thing about working for Playdale has to be seeing children (and adults) enjoying the finished parks and equipment. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing people having a great time on a project you have been involved in.

Favourite playground:

One of my favourite sites for superb community access to sports is at Goxhill Playing Fields in the village of Goxhill, North Lincolnshire. There are two Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs) side by side which are fantastic sports areas for children to enjoy up to EIGHT different sports, develop their skills, meet other children and share their sporting experiences. I look forward to having a kickabout with my son here when he’s a bit older!
