I have been associated with the breed for 12 years under the watchful eye of the late Maurice Marshall and I breed wires under the affix of Wyregait. I also currently serve on the Birmingham Fox Terrier Club Committee.

Outside of the dog world I worked for Rolls Royce for 40 years before I took early retirement. I was a keen cricketer and captained for my club for 25 years. I am the club chairman for the local Sports Club.
