I was brought up on dairy farm near Carluke - the town where I now live. Farming wasn't for me, so I studied Computer and Electronic Systems at the University of Strathclyde. I started work as an embedded software developer working on car software before moving into web development in the customer services area, most recently working for a Scottish utility provider as a Solution Architect. I am delighted to have found my way back to agriculture, at least in a small way! I enjoy walking and mountain biking with my wife and two girls.
