I was first elected in Halesowen & Rowley Regis in May 2010 and am doing everything that I can to support local people and to help make our area an even better place to live, work and raise a family.
Before entering Parliament I set up and ran my own small businesses, and am trying to use that experience and understanding of the challenges that firms face, to help boost our local economy.
During my time as an MP I have campaigned on many issues that face our community in Halesowen & Rowley Regis, and ones which have an impact nationally. I am passionate campaigner for better mental health care, have championed devolution and hold a keen interest in foreign affairs.
I am married to Anna and we have two children - Sol and Evie.
