I grew up here, going to Saltwood Primary School and The Harvey Grammar. My first full-time job was at Saga and I also worked as a waiter at The Imperial Hotel in Hythe and a barman at the old Bonkers nightclub in Folkestone Harbour.

I'm currently Deputy Chief Executive of a global charity helping the world's poorest children. During my 25-year career I have also worked around the world as an aid worker, journalist and in politics, including advising the UK government's Secretary of State for International Development and working for The United Nations and the BBC.

I'm a proud husband and a dad of two small girls.

And I'm really proud to be the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Folkestone and Hythe.
