Nigel is an IT Service Manager for a London council and lives in East Grinstead. He joined the team in September 2015 and completed the beginners search course with his cocker spaniel Maggie. Nigel took the hard decision to stop Maggie's search training as his lengthy daily commute did not allow him to give Maggie enough practice time to progress. He continues as an operational Search Technician supporting the operational dog handlers on live searches and putting the navigation skills he learned as a teenager in the Air Training Corp to good use. His wife says he's a “Map Geek”.
