                      Title:
                   Director

BIO: I am a University of York graduate, too many years ago to own up to! My pathway began football coaching and I passed my UEFA B in 2010. Over the years I have diversified and accumulated many other coaching qualifications in a range of sports.I spent 5 months in the states in 2005 and this inspired to work with young people on my return to the UK, I have taught PE in primary schools ever since.

Initially, I was working with a UK wide franchise but then took up a role with the Lambeth SSP as their Director of Coaching. Further progression saw me take over as PDM in 2010 and oversee the last months of funding for SSPs. I set up Moving Matters in 2011 and now the organisation work with over 50 schools in London and Wiltshire.

I've always loved playing a range of sports but football is my passion and I've played at a semi-professional level for over 10 years. Despite a serious knee injury in 2013, I'm determined not to hang the boots up just yet but think the writing might be on the wall! I'm now a proud father of two beautiful boys, so my dedication is now to them.
