Personal Profile

Born and raised in Caithness, I spent my early working life in wildlife management before embarking on a 30 year career with the Northern Constabulary, serving in various parts of the Highlands and Islands before moving to Orkney in 1992.  For some years prior to retiring from the service in 2010, I was the Community Safety Officer for Orkney, representing Northern Constabulary on various bodies relative to community planning in Orkney.

Besides being the part-time Rector of St Olaf’s Episcopal Church, I am also Chaplain to the Sea Cadet Corps, the Royal Naval Association and the Kirkwall branch of Royal British Legion (Scotland).

Married to Barbara since 1981, we have four grown up children and one young grandson.
