I was born in Jersey and educated at De La Salle. I studied law at Kingston University, attended Bar School in London after that, qualifying as a barrister and then returned to Jersey and qualified as a local lawyer in 1997. I worked at the law firm, Collas Crill, for 27 years up to October 2020 and was a partner there from 2000. I joined the firm Viberts as a Partner when I left Collas Crill. My specialism is property law, and in particular commercial property and I am a former chair of the Law Society Conveyancing Sub-Committee. I am also a qualified Notary Public.
I live in St. Clement with my wife, Lisa and three children and Boris the dog. My interests are going to the gym, yoga, and golf and I am a long-suffering fan of the football team, Plymouth Argyle.
What I perhaps hadn’t appreciated when I first joined the Committee at Family Nursing & Home Care was the scope of services it offers throughout the whole of everyone’s lives and how so many Islanders benefit from those services. When I first joined the Committee I shadowed certain teams to get a feel for what they do and I was struck by the diversity of care offered.
I also loved both the care shown and the total professionalism of every single staff member I worked with. They loved what they were doing.
I think that the events of 2020 have brought about the long-overdue recognition of nursing in general and the front line bravery of the FNHC team, as well as the support provided by the administrative teams, has been very impressive.
