Born and bred in Cardiff, my family and I moved to the Vale of Glamorgan 14 years ago. I was first elected as Councillor for the Murch ward in 2008 and am currently Chairman of Dinas Powys Community Council.

I am a solicitor that has worked in the private and pubic sector for the past 16 years. Before that I produced sports Programmes for the BBC.

Outside of work, I have been a school governor, a non-executive member of a Housing Association, and I am an avid Cardiff City and Wales football fan.

What is the most important thing you think the Senedd should do in the next five years?

It is important to set out the sort of Wales we want to live in after Covid-19 and Brexit. I believe that these though times has shown the importance of decisions about Wales being made in Wales. I will be supporting an independence referendum within the next 5 years.

What will you do for Vale of Glamorgan if elected?

I will continue to campaign to tackle traffic issues across the Vale of Glamorgan. I am committed to improving educational standards in our schools and to end child poverty.
