I hail from a couple of little villages in rural South Scotland where I received a fantastic high school education. I've lived in Glasgow, London, Washington DC and little villages outside of each of Warwick and Bradford and now live blocks away from the Pacific under the shadow of the magnificent Cascade mountains.
