Favourite part of my job

My favourite part of the job is working as a team with some incredible people.

Hobbies and interests

When I have some downtime I enjoy spending my time with my wife and little girl as well as having a few beers with friends.

Interesting Fact

I received an award for bringing a gentleman in Holmfirth back to life after he had suffered a cardiac arrest.


"From a young age I always wanted to work for a public service.

Being an on-call firefighter means I can help the people within my local community; it has taught me new skills and allowed me to be part of a fantastic team"
