A Traditional Food Technologist and Manager who included health and safety and environmental management in his day-to-day responsibilities. Stephen worked with robots, chemicals, irradiation, ozone, bacteria control and ice gems, just to name a few, across the UK in the high-risk food industry.
Because of experience of living in the real world with impairments Stephen made the move from Operations Manager, to developing new skills and knowledge about disability awareness, accessibility and inclusive design.
Stephen is passionately involved with training and coaching which includes Dementia Awareness training, Spinal Games, Limb Power Games, Children with Disabilities Games, shooting demonstrations at the Paralympic day at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and coaching junior rifle shooters.
On a more personal note, Stephen trains with Disability Shooting Great Britain and is focusing on the Paralympics.
Stephen’s interests are photography, cooking, wheelchair activities including hand cycling and tennis and playing the Digeridoo. His favourite colours are pink and orange unless you are talking about leather as that is always brown.
