I  joined the university in 2005, I started off my career working with Edinburgh First for the first 14 years dealing mainly in conference and events. I then moved on to Timetabling & Examinations for 3 years prior to joining the Chaplaincy. 


I have over a decade of experience working with people from many areas of business and life and I enjoy meeting new people and sharing our experiences.


Originally from New York,USA but I have called Edinburgh my home for over 25 years, I enjoy going back to the states when possible and my wife and myself love to travel and have been to many different countries over the years.
