My first love was always music.
After living in Australia for ten years, doing all sort of different jobs, I came home in 1994 to become a Sony Award-winning producer (and occasional presenter) on Radio Forth, and was one of the founders of the award-winning Scottish club-night ‘VEGAS!’ - still going strong after 20 years - and I still do some DJ’ing at club nights or in pubs.
It was all great experience, but becoming a Humanist celebrant meant that I found my true vocation. It is - without a shadow of a doubt - the most satisfying, fulfilling, and meaningful aspect of my entire life.
Funerals, weddings, and naming ceremonies are major life-events, for everyone involved and, although tears and laughter are there, they all reveal the strongest of all human emotions - love - the most human of emotions, and because of that I consider it to be the ultimate privilege to conduct them.
PS: I’m a committed, all-year-round 'biker',
"Ross and I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for marrying us on the 12th of October at Newhall.
The ceremony was exactly what we wanted - having you share our 'story' with our family and being an integral part of the day meant the world to us.
So many of our family and friends have commented on how personal the ceremony was, and also how funny!
Thank you so much for all the time and energy you put into preparing for our big day, and most importantly, thank you for sharing it with us!"
"We were both a little apprehensive about the homework at first and we just weren't sure what on earth we would write. But, once we got started we both really enjoyed doing it. It flowed so easy and it was just such a nice way to find out what we really meant to each other.
We laughed so much at how most of what we wrote was similar and it was lovely to hear all the things each other had to say. This was something we really needed to help ease stresses of planning and decision making and we are grateful to you for giving us the opportunity to do it!"
