If my face, or my voice, are familiar, don't be alarmed. It's because you have seen me in newspapers or on telly, or heard me on the radio. I've been a journalist for 30 years, working at various newspapers and popping up as a commentator on other media. Now I'm using all my skills in communication and storytelling as a humanist celebrant, making ceremonies that are personal and appropriate and tailored for you.
I've dealt with politicians, Nobel prize winners, celebrities, campaigners, homeless folk, you name it. I can get on everyone and anyone and have years of experience of putting people at their ease - and helping them to find the right words to communicate what they are trying to say.
I live in Partick in Glasgow. I have two large, expensive children. I like cooking, going to the theatre, wasting time on the internet and buying vintage toys and old plates from charity shops.
