At 52 I'm still not sure what career path to take. To date I have spent the last 35 years ersing about on boats, deep sea and coastal,ranging from Tromso in the north to South Georgia in the Southern Ocean, USA in the west to Hong Kong and Philipines in the far east, visiting a few dodgy bars and Dens of eniquity along the way, currently employed discharging/loading container ships in the port of Grangemouth.


Best Climbing Experience
Hunners'n hunners, nothing hard, too many to mention individually, lots of classic rock routes and countless winter days in the hills, family holidays to Slovenia, Austria and the Dolomites and trips with the box o' toys to Norway (ice), Costa Blanca and France clipping bolts. My final Munro being my 4 year old laddie's 1st, Climbing Dent Blanche, Eiger and the Matterhorn in a fortnight, ok it was guided but at 50 I wisnae mucking about....biological clock ticking!!!

About My Photography
I know Diddely squat about photography. Only started taking the odd snap a couple of years ago after receiving a wee didgy camera as a gift. I tend to use the "Jesse James" method, shoot from the hip and hope for the best.
