I was born and brought up in Kirkwall, educated at Kirkwall Grammar School and Stromness Academy. On leaving school I worked for the Bank of Scotland, I moved to the family firm in 1975 and then to Royal Mail in 1989.
I married Ony in 1975, we have two children, Kevin and Kylie, and 5 granddaughters: Eilidh, Grace, Jennifer, Katie and Rhona.

Apart from the grandchildren I enjoy researching the family tree. I am also fond of reading historically related books plus defence related magazines.
At home, wandering around Birsay or at OIC.
