COAST Wealth Management was established when I accepted an invitation to join St. James's Place Wealth Management. Based in Devon on the Jurassic Coast, I provide advice to clients across the South West of England.
Prior to accepting the invitation to become an Associate Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management, I developed an extensive, varied and knowledgeable experience within an array of skills with the career and lifestyle choice I have had the privilege to have encountered.
On leaving Exeter College after studying electrical and mechanical engineering, I served nearly eight years as an Aircraft Engineering Mechanic in the Fleet Air Arm. Between 1992 and 1995 I was attached to the United Nations on operational duties during The Balkan War.
Discharged from the Royal Navy in 1997, I (and my future wife) spent a year ‘backpacking’ around the world experiencing diversity and culture previously only read about in books!
On returning to the UK I studied at University of Plymouth, graduating with a Bachelor of Education degree (BEd) then working locally as a Primary School Teacher for 10 fantastic years before circumstances offered a change of direction.
I continue to live and work in my home town of Budleigh Salterton; a beautiful small seaside town in East Devon, part of the Jurassic Coast and a natural World Heritage site. When I’m not working I spend quality time with my family and 'attempt to' keep-fit through various sports.
