I am originally from Yorkshire, but now I live in Lancashire with my wife and two young boys. When I’m not at work I enjoy relaxing with the family and I love being outdoors, biking running, walking to name a few. In the past I have run a few half marathons and walked trails nearly covering the length of Scotland.
I work on aircraft fuel systems, essentially my job requires me to make sure fuel is delivered to the aircraft engines in all operating conditions, providing the aircraft with the thrust to generate lift.
