The Early Years

Before moving to London I’d dabbled with shop keeping as a Summer Holidays temp position in the appealingly named “Lollipop Shop.”

Spent a year in N. Ireland living on my Uncle & Aunts farm working in my Uncles company TerraTech as a Civil Engineering Lab Technician. This was my first “proper job.” Also helped out on evenings and weekends with farming duties.

Moved back to Scotland and worked at Findhorn in the Maintenance Dept with a couple of years playing at Sound Engineering and Cameraman roles.

Then before joining FontWorks in London I was as a Forklift driver for Scottish Express International. All in all quite the varied mix.
