After attending Telford and Trinity schools in Leamington Spa I started at the British School of Racing in Newmarket to train as an apprentice jockey. I rode for a number of local trainers before moving to the USA where I worked in the top flight training thoroughbreds.
On returning to the UK I gained a City and Guilds qualification in Building Maintenance at Warwickshire College and this led to my career in the flooring industry.Initially I worked in commercial buildings installing hard flooring in hospitals, hotels and offices. At the same time, I gained experience of domestic flooring, including carpets, wood,LVT and vinyl. Eventually I progressed into Customer Service on the retail side and relished the challenge of assisting customers with the complexities of domestic flooring.My qualifications and experience gave me the confidence to open my own shop in Park Street, which together with my trusted fitters, enables me to offer a first class service.
As in a horse race I am always looking to produce a “great finish” for my clients.
