Please get in touch through my email address (above). Like many folk in Orkney, unfortunately I do not have reliable mobile signal at home, so it’s best to arrange by email to make sure I don’t miss your call.
I grew up in the community of North Ronaldsay, attended the island primary school and then Kirkwall Grammar School.
At 18 I was lucky enough to take part in the Orkney - Hordaland exchange, where I studied “Musikk” in Voss, Norway. I then studied Ecology at the University of Stirling (1st class Honours) where I wrote my dissertation on the management of North Ronaldsay sheep.
On the completion of my studies, I moved home to Orkney where I have been living and working since.

Volunteering at community events, working on the family croft and having a good tune in a session – when that is allowed!
I am also interested in science communication, natural history, traditional music, culture and local dialect.
On the croft in North Ronaldsay or cutting about Kirkwall - fiddle case in hand.
