Who am I?

I was born in the east end of Glasgow where I went to primary and secondary schools. I married, had children and still live in the east end today.

When I left school I worked in the building trade, then joined the Royal Marines and served for 15 years including four years serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. I was one of the first to train the Ukrainian military back in 2000.

I left the military and moved into IT Networking, gaining a Master’s degree in Network Security along with several industrial qualifications.

I then spent 3 years working with NATO holding senior job positions.I have worked in various regions of the world in Enterprise Networking. My last role in the IT/engineering industry was as Senior Domain Architect.

I also find it rewarding to build model wooden ships of Lord Nelson’s navy. I have donated these to the Royal Marines and you can see one of my ships in the Erskine Veterans Charity Hospital. They are also to be found in Marine messes up and down the country and one in Whale Island in Portsmouth harbour at the offices of the Royal Marines Charity.

Why am I standing as the Reform Prospective Parliamentary Candidate For Glasgow East?

I have concerns now about the curriculum being given to children at school, and this needs change.

I’m very concerned about the present tax being forced upon the Scottish people, and a strong believer in abolishing IR35 for small business.

I would also clear the student loans to Doctors and Nurses for 10 years in order from them to work without the burden of years of student loans, with them giving 10 years to the NHS in return.
