My family and I moved to Great Shelford in late 2014 and we enjoy living here enormously. I was born and brought up in Scotland where I took an undergraduate degree in physics at St Andrews; I came to Cambridge in October 1996 to study for a PhD in physics at Darwin College. I loved it so much here that I didn’t leave!

I joined the Parish Council in April 2021 with a strong interest in the large infrastructure projects that could influence Great Shelford in the coming years, including EWR, CSET, the Greater Cambridge Local Plan and the Ox Cam Arc. Professionally, I am a technology consultant and I currently work for 42 Technology (St Ives) where I am Head of Manufacturing and Digital Deposition. My responsibilities include business development and senior project leadership, which largely involves identifying and developing new technologies to enhance our clients’ businesses. Applied physics and engineering is my livelihood as well as my interest.

I am a keen amateur sportsperson and my interests include cycling, golf, fitness and Munro bagging (climbing Scotland’s highest mountains). I used to play a lot of football, both at university level and in the South Cambridgeshire leagues, but, unfortunately, two knee injuries have forced an early retirement. I use my experience in football to manage my son’s team at Trumpington FC.
