A born and bred Scot, I moved to Canberra, Australia with my family in 1968 and lived there until coming to Armidale, NSW in 2017 to be near offspring.

I hold Masters degrees from Glasgow University (Arts) and the University of New England (Australian Studies).

My paid job for fourteen years was as an Examiner of Trade Marks in the Australian Public Service, graduating to indexer and instructor in the growing computerisation of the (then) Patent, Trade Marks and Designs Office Service (now Intellectual Property).

After leaving the Public Service, I joined the local community radio station, recording and producing, but also presenting, radio drama, Scottish poetry and occasional special interest programs.

I also spent many years as a volunteer with the family research team at the Australian War Memorial.

My vocation, however, is in theatre. I spent forty-eight years with the Canberra Repertory Society which moved in that time from an old government hut to the former Assembly Hall of the old Canberra High School.

I am a past president, director, actor and a bit of everything. Latterly, due to my long and varied corporate knowledge, I was appointed Rep’s archivist.

My theatre career also included independent productions in the 1990s, my staging of the Glasgow tenement play Men Should Weep being presented with a Canberra Critics Circle Award. In earlier days, mainly 1970s, I adapted and presented several shows for Alpha Theatre for Children—a time I call my P-period: Pinocchio, Poppencast, and the Pied Piper.

Since coming to Armidale I have capped many, frequently interrupted, years’ work on a novel about the English portrait painter Sir Thomas Lawrence. It is called A Coloured Canvas, Lives, loves and losses in the artistic world of Regency England. Thanks to technical help from my daughter Helen and Australian eBook Publisher, it is now an e-book publication available on Amazon, Apple I-books, Google Play and others.

Previous publications are Come to Dazzle, a non-fiction account of the 1891 tour of Australia by the actress Sarah Bernhardt and With Abundant Pride, a history of Canberra Repertory’s enduring and popular Old Time Music Hall.
