As a recent graduate of Edinburgh Napier University with a 2.1 degree BEng (Hons) degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, I have recently started my career as a Machine Tool Field Service Engineer for the Saw Centre.
My main interest is sport, I have been playing rugby competitively for 9 years and I am currently a member of Boroughmuir RFC; one of Scotland’s leading clubs. In the past I have played for my school team, Larne RFC, my County team and Ulster U19s.
I attend my local gym regularly, usually 3 times a week.
