Sarah and me many years ago

This is just a short section describing a little about me, my family and our history. I have a Mum, Dad and little sister, the photo on the left is myself and my sister in the 1980s. I was born at Foresterhill Hospital, Aberdeen.

I lived in Ferryhill, Aberdeen until a week before my 4th birthday when my Dad's job moved us to England. We went to Maidenhead, Berkshire (near London) where I started school at Oldfield Primary. We then moved to Dubai in November 1987 where I went to Jumeirah English Speaking School until 1991. During this time however we had a short spell living in Houston, Texas (due to the Gulf crisis in 1990), where I went to Holy Spirit Episcopal School. We moved back to Aberdeen in 1991, where I attended Ashley Road Primary, Mile-End Primary and Aberdeen Grammar School.

I then went to Strathclyde University in Glasgow to study Mechanical Engineering. During this time I spent my 3rd year of study at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia in Spain. In 2005 my family moved to Vietnam but by that stage I was old enough to look after myself, and stayed in the UK! Since then I have lived and worked as an engineer for an oil company in Aberdeen, offshore North Sea, China, London, Dubai again and Alaska.
