Born in March of 1982, I am Managing Director of ELC Roofing Ltd and grew up in Boxted, Suffolk. My father, Michael Carlo is a well-known local artist and printmaker, whilst my mother Lynn, is a local antiques dealer, and Brother Joe a music teacher.
Both of my parents run their own businesses from their home in Boxted, which is where I developed the acumen to also become a successful businessman.
At a young age I always enjoyed being outside, whether fishing, playing football, or simply playing in the fields near the local farm.
I attended Hartest Primary School where I met many of my friends, who I am still in touch with today. I then attended Clare Middle School along with most of my friends from Hartest.
From there, I completed my education at Sudbury Upper School, Sudbury and Suffolk.
I am currently living locally with my partner and am a very proud father of two wonderful boys aged 9 and 1. My partner Alice is a teacher at a local primary school.
Out of work, I like to spend time with my family, whether it be a trip out with the children to a history museum or a gentle stroll in the local park. Some of my favourite places I have taken the family include Cornwall, The Cotswolds and France. We particularly like to take the children to Cornwell, where we can take our eldest son swimming, body boarding and surfing, while our youngest son particularly loves to play in the sand. The Cotswolds is a more relaxing holiday, where we can enjoy the countryside walks, and teach the children about the wildlife we come across, and also visit local castles.
I enjoy to cook for my family in the evenings, whilst listening to a track or two of jazz music or Van Morrison, before heading out to do a little bit of gardening.
On a Sunday afternoon I like to play cricket for local village team Long Melford, where many years ago I met Tom, who now works with me in the offices.
I have always been a huge fan of many sports, and to this day I still enjoy my fishing, partly because of being a big lover of wildlife. I enjoy watching my local football team Ipswich Town play at Portman Road or taking a trip to Lords to watch England play cricket, when I can find the time.
