About Me

I come from Highland Perthshire in Scotland. I grew up on a wee farm on a hillside. I’ve had a highly varied working life ranging from tree planter to call centre worker, distribution logistics manager to organic farmer, and I toured and recorded with a number of "Irish" Bands in New Zealand during the nineties as their fiddle player. Two albums are out there - Culture Vulture and An Orchestrated Litany of Lies from 1993 & 1995 - from the band Banshee Reel are a happy memory.

I've been working away at graphic and web design since I was hired by Birnam CD (www.birnamcd.com) at the beginning of 1999 to become their graphic designer and sound engineer. I started with Photoshop 4 on an Apple Mac and Sam's Learn Photoshop in 24-hours, almost 20 years ago, my third career I think.

I love the world of nature and the environment, and I do my best to take good photographs of some of the many incredibly wonderful things I'm lucky enough to see.

And when I get the chance, I'll go and cast a fly for a trout.

Anyhoo, I won't keep you.

Slainthe, a chairdean!
