I was installed on 28 April and am responsible for governing and directing the life and work of Worcester Cathedral, working with the rest of the Cathedral Chapter (which consists of the three
residentiary canons and the two lay canons).

Before becoming Dean, I was a Residentiary Canon and Chancellor of Chichester Cathedral.

In my career, I have also been a vicar in a number of different parishes and Principal of Chichester Theological College.

I was born in Tunbridge Wells in 1952 and am married with three children. I studied theology at St. John's College, Oxford and was ordained deacon in 1979 and priest in 1980.
