I am originally from Birmingham, though my father was from Cromarty. I have lived on the Black Isle since 2001, seven years in Avoch and four in Cromarty where I now live with my wife Dorrie, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
I'm a keen football fan, supporting West Bromwich Albion, Hearts and of course, Ross County.
My objective as an SNP Highland Region councillor for the Black Isle is to serve all residents of the Black Isle - irrespective of colour, creed, nationality, physical abilitiy, sexual orientation or religion.
I will listen non-judgementally to residents' concerns and issues and act promptly on these.
I will liase closely with my ward colleagues and Highland Council officials, to achieve where possible positive outcomes for all residents of the Black Isle.
