Personal Details

I was born in Scotland in 1966, and brought up in the country south of Glasgow. I live in a converted Victorian terrace house in central Cambridge with my partner and two young sons. I enjoy the usual mix of travel, food and fine wine, but also have an environmental streak and a pair of well-worn walking boots. I am pretty good with languages and can get by in French, Spanish, German and even English.
