Dave Naylor, a Lancastrian bloke living in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I was born in the mill-town of Oldham but I migrated to the eastern side of the Pennines over thirty years ago.
In 2004 I ended up living near the bottom of the M621; I’ve been there ever since. I suppose I’m now from Leeds, something at which a younger me would have baulked.
Married to Lisa, a Leeds girl, and we have a son: Fraser. I have two daughters: Rebecca who lives in London with her husband Ryan and Lisa who lives in Meltham with her fiancee Matt. We have a cat called George.
