About me

For 22 years, I worked in the City of London, specialising in marketing and design for financial and professional services. In 2008, I left a full time role running a design and production studio for a global law firm and started my own marketing and design company.

In 2010 I became an Elim Licensed Minister and joined the leadership team of the Estuary Elim Group of Churches. In 2015 I became a fully ordained Elim Minister.

Now I am a 'full-time' church minister, 'part time' designer and marketing expert.

I am a husband, a father and a grandfather. I live in Essex, and enjoy my life.
Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction but God is always good!
