My professional career was in IT, in the UK and New Zealand, latterly working in the Nordics and the UK. My family and I have lived on our ex-commercial barge 'Misterton' for over 13 years after restoring her.
We've owned Hippersons Boatyard in Beccles since 2014 and through our dayboats and accommodation have introduced thousands of people to the beauty of the Broads National Park. As I live on the water and run a business based around the river, I'm keenly interested in the navigation and the environmental issues that the Broads Authority has to address.
