Colin has worked for the Ambulance Service since 1995, qualifying as a Paramedic two years later. He has held a number of management posts within South East Coast Ambulance and now has a dual role as Clinical Team Leader and Health & Safety Manager for the Trust.
Colin was born and educated in Kent. He trained in retail management and was Area Manager for an in-store credit card provider. He changed career direction and joined Kent Ambulance Service. He is a member of The College of Paramedics and is a Technician member of IOSH. For nearly 20 years he was a school governor of Wainscott Primary School until retiring as Chairman of Governors in October 2010.

Colin is married with three children and lives near Rochester, in Kent. In 2003 at very short notice he became part of the medical team supporting the first EnduroIndia sponsored motorbike ride as a "once in a lifetime trip" and with only one exception has been back every year since! He has also joined the Karma trips run by Global Enduro. Last year he took on the role of Medical Coordinator for Global Enduro.
