Bio: 
Born in St Andrews, Scotland. Music’s been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember, played guitar for quite a while, it’s satisfying to write new things. Would like to have an extended holiday in the USA to check out loads of stuff: music, art, derby, ice hockey, monument valley… the list goes on. Very pleasantly surprised that derby has re-emerged as a popular and accessible sport, and always impressed with the skills and athleticism of the CRDL teams and crew.
