"I am originally from Aberdare and married to Geraldine. We have 3 children who have now sprung the nest. I left home at 17 to join the army and after 6 years became a police officer. Having retired from the police and after 40 years away from Wales, I returned in 2016 deciding to live in Mumbles, where I spent a few holidays and many day trips as a child. I became a community councillor to contribute to society to the best of my ability and to get things done."
