How did you get involved with pride and why?
After enjoying a number of Northern Prides and seeing on FB that the team needed some support for this year I thought it was time to put something back into the event and have a new challenge for myself.

What is your role?
I am the Chairman

If money was no object who would be your ultimate Pride headliner?
I think that would have to be the ultimate Queen of pop Kylie Im afraid I do like my cheesy pop.

What was the first record you ever bought?
My first record would have beed ABBA and i think it was actually a tape (if you can remember things like tapes) I didnt buy sigles so would have been an album, don't know how no one knew i was gay .

What skills and experience do you bring to the Northern Pride committee?
From my normal day work I'm the Operations Director for a Financial Services Network and am responsible for the marketing and communications within the business which will help in this role

What are your hopes for this year's Northern Pride?
I'd like to see the number of event we run throughout the year to expand and not just have a focus on the party in the park, and if at all possible just a little sunshine would be nice if a lot was not possible.
