In my previous career as a pilot for more than 30 years, safety has been at the forefront of my daily job. I'm excited to use the principles I have learned, and along with the team at Coastwide, help contribute to a new generation of safe and confident drivers.

During my time, I have lived and worked in 5 different countries and I met my Chinese wife working in Beijing. I love to deal with people from diverse backgrounds and different cultures.

I'm also a father of four and I want the road to be safer for them and for your families.

In my spare time, I'm a golfing nut and enjoy flying RC aircraft.

Simon is an incredible instructor and I am very happy I chose to go with Coastwide Driving. Simon was understanding and patient and gave advice and tips where needed to help me succeed in passing my driving test. I am very grateful, thank you.
