Senior Mortgage & Protection

Professional Profile

Whether my clients are first time buyers or experienced property landlords, I thoroughly enjoy helping them to reach their goals. Nothing makes me happier than to successfully obtain a mortgage when the client believed that they had no chance due to complexities that they presented to me. I will do all I can to achieve a positive outcome, I will challenge lenders if I believe that there is justification to challenge. A happy client is my number one priority!


Most of my earlier working life was spent as a fully qualified Master Photographer, where I specialised in weddings, family portraits and portfolios for entertainers. In 2007, I decided to have a complete change in careers as I wanted a new challenge, I had a brief spell in the world of finance in my earlier working life and decided this is where my future belonged. I joined a well-known high street building society and trained as a mortgage and protection adviser. In 2014 I moved into specialist lending specialising in Buy to Let mortgages. After a couple of years, I had to take some time out from working due to illness, when the time was right, I joined Balanced Financial Services which enabled me to get back to what I love doing, helping clients with their property purchases and remortgages.

Personal Profile

Born in Berkshire, moved to Norfolk at the age of four. When I was seven, we moved to Perth, Western Australia and had a fantastic few years which I still remember fondly. Australia has a special place in my heart still to this day.


I have been married since 1995, we have three boys, they have all left school now…… more school runs!!!


As a family, we love to go on holiday, we are regular visitors to the Canary Islands as we are all sun worshippers, other memorable places that I have visited in the past are the USA, Switzerland, and Iceland (not the shop). I still have many places to visit on my bucket list.


Please don’t judge me, I am a huge supporter of Norwich City Football Club and a season ticket holder with my youngest son. I have many clients who are from Suffolk and support that team in blue, a little friendly banter about our teams puts a smile on their faces then we get on with business.
