I was born in Scotland and raised for the majority of my years growing up in Kirkcaldy, Fife. Early on I knew I wanted to be on TV and desired a career in the media, but my original trade turned out to be pharmacy.
In 2011, I successfully completed a Masters degree in Pharmacy at Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen and completed pre-registration training in the West Midlands, England. Following registration as a pharmacist, I started practising in early 2013 and have worked across the length and breadth of Scotland.
But in 2016, I decided it was time to make a necessary shift career-wise. I remained a pharmacist by profession, but started studying for an MA in Broadcast Journalism with University of the West of Scotland in Ayr. The decision was not taken lightly, but was essential and one of the best moves I have ever pulled off. Participating in the course gave me the training necessary in order to become a competent broadcast journalist and thus furthering my interest in the media. I graduated towards the end of 2017. It was one of the greatest achievements of my entire life.
From the summer of 2017, I’ve been honoured to freelance for Kingdom FM News. I periodically read the news, informing the Kingdom of Fife what’s happening locally, nationally and internationally.
My interests include public speaking, playing pool occasionally and travelling around different places. I also support Newcastle United and Heart of Midlothian in football.
