Born in South Wales, I have lived in the Midlands for twenty eight years and in Worcestershire for the last fifteen years; apart from a brief two year sojourn in South Africa.

Following many years in IT marketing and sales I set up Eco2Solar in 2006, specialising in the installation of solar energy for homes and businesses. We take on all sizes of projects; from an individual home up to large health centres and care homes. Please visit if you would like to know more.

I am passionate about the environment but I'm also a married father of three and my pleasures include great food and beer, walking in the Worcestershire hills and travelling (when I get the chance).
