I started my career as a Motor Vehicle Mechanic at the age of 17 by completing a 3 year apprentiship with a Mercedes Benz dealership and continued here after I qualified. I progressed in my career by moving onto Kent Police working in their workshop for a number of years. In 2006 uncertainty in my role at Kent Police due to restructuring meant I started working for Martins Upholstery Supplies in a different career. After 4 years I realised I missed the motor trade so went to A & T.
