About Me


To avoid the tourist trail. To meet real people and hear their stories


I am on the last leg of a giant world tour which has seen me travel across Asia (including Vietnam, China and Camobodia, work in Australia for 3 months and visit New Zealand and Fiji. I am an easy going, amusing Scottish guy who is friendly, outgoing and enjoys meeting new people


I believe that you should work hard and play hard. Additionally, you should treat people you would like them to treat you.

Music, Movies, and Books

Have just finished a book by Kazuo Ishiguro. Am big fan of Franz Kafka. In terms of movies, like all genres, though have a soft spot for gangster flicks (Once upon a Time in America being one of my all time favourites) Have eclectic taste in music, ranging from rock, to jazz (I used to play the saxophone) and back to classical.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skydiving, at 15,000 feet over Lake Taupo, New Zealand

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach people some cultural Scottish gems such as highland dancing and funny Scottish words.
