I was born in Antrim, Northern Ireland in 1980. Shortly afterwards my Parents moved to West Germany where I grew up in Soest and Detmold with short visits to Middle Wallop and Andover in Hampshire. 1994 was the year we moved to Wattisham, Suffolk for 2 years, afterwards moving to Shrewsbury, Shropshire for 2 years, Market Harborough, Leicestershire for another 2 and finally East Carlton in Northamptonshire.
I was taught at the Duke of York's Royal Military School in Dover, Kent where I obtained my GCSEs and A Levels. I took an interest in Artwork - specifically acrylic landscapes. I took part in the CCF here where I obtained the rank of acting Flight Sergeant for the RAF section of the CCF.
After the Duke of York's I read Computing Science at the University of Glasgow for 4 years graduating with a 2:1 honours degree in July 2002. Shortly after I leased a flat in the west end and started working for a company called Virtual-Mirrors Ltd. where I am currently working on a digital clothing project. In August 2003 I purchased a flat in Baillieston.
In September 2003 I got engaged to Louise and in November 2004 I moved into Louise’s house in Baillieston. After my flat was sold we purchased a holiday townhouse in the "White Village" of Olvera in Andalucia, Spain. We married in December 2005 at the Sherbrooke Castle Hotel in Glasgow.
I have interests in Painting, Computing, Photography and Offroading. I've had a digital camera for a couple of years and have increasingly got more interested in taking nice pictures with it. A few months ago I splashed out and bought myself a shiny new Digital SLR and have been taking time to get used to it - still pretty rubbish at photography but I'm working on it!!
I do enjoy taking my Suzuki SJ 413 offroading with the West of Scotland All Terrain Club. The car is quite capable of (more so than me anyway) some serious offroad use, now kitted out with chunky muds it drives like a charm - I've even recovered a few Landrover Defenders with it!
