Mike grew up in Bournemouth before studying Maths at St John’s College, Oxford University. He worked in London and Singapore within the banking and software industries before returning to Bournemouth in 2008 with his wife, Nicola and their sons, Samuel and Joseph.
Having already served as a councillor in a busy part of London, Mike was first elected as councillor for Central Ward in 2011. For the last two years he has also served as the Council’s Cabinet Member for Strategy and Policy.
His ambitions for Central Bournemouth include improving the Lansdowne Area where he used to work in his father’s Chemist Shop and making it into an exciting place which will attract the new creative and digital industries; preserving and enhancing our beautiful seafront; and doing whatever he can to save Bournemouth from the threatened Wind Farm. He is a particularly active campaigner against the industrialisation of our unique sea views.
Mike is always on hand to help residents with all sorts of issues. He prides himself on getting things done quickly so that this part of Bournemouth looks at its best.
