Steve is a retied Physics and Maths FE lecturer. He has lived in Gestingthorpe since 1983. Both his sons went to Hedingham School.

From 2004 to 2007, he was a Braintree District Councillor for the Hedingham and Maplestead Ward. He served on modernisation, planning and environmental committees. Since then he has remained the Lib Dem candidate for his local District Ward and County Division.

From 2007 he has been a member of the non-party-political Gestingthorpe Parish Council. He led on bringing Wireless Broadband to Gestingthorpe in 2008. He represents the PC The Gestingthorpe Educational Foundation, and represented it on the National Grid Bramford to Twinstead Forum, which successfully resisted a new 400 000 volt pylon line across the Stour Valley.

Steve came to the end of three terms as a Vice Chairman of the Green Liberal Democrats (an internal Lib Dem group which addresses environmental matters) in March, but remains on its Executive. He has sat on the Liberal Democrat national Policy Working Groups on "Skills and 16+ Education" and "Zero Carbon Britain 2050".

He is a member of the Colne Stour Countryside Association and the Thames Sailing Barge trust. He enjoys skiing and music.

Steve is a Lib Dem because he wants a greener world, a stronger economy and a fairer society. Only a green, environmentally sustainable, economy can be a strong economy in the long term, and thus be fair to following generations.

He believes that only in a world at peace can economic strength be used harness to maximise human happiness; and that our membership of the European Union is vital to combating rapid climate-change, conserving resources and maintaining peace and stability in Europe and the wider world.
