For the last 16 years, I have been involved in Welfare Rights and benefits with various charities and local authorities, advising on entitlement, assisting with claims and appeal representation, gaining various welfare rights related certification. Through this, a greater understanding of other issues and legislation has been gained and eventually I joined SDS Forth Valley in 2019. I am the “tech” person for our online presentations, filmed work and podcasts (I know what button not to press and don’t break or delete things!!)

In my spare time I am an accomplished musician and, along with my wife, I am a fully qualified holistic therapist.
