About me

I'm an English-language writer, author, football journalist and presenter from Scotland who lives in the Netherlands and works all over the world.

I've been freelance since 2001. Over the last 23 years I've been lucky enough to travel widely for many different projects and clients, as well as get involved in some brilliant and very inspirational jobs.

I've interviewed and written about leading figures in major multinationals, as well as many of the top footballers and coaches in the world (Cruyff, Messi...). I've presented at exhibitions in Europe and America. Become 'the guy on camera' for various businesses within Philips. Travelled all over the world as writer and videographer on leadership journeys. Written almost 30 books. Covered two European Championships, two Nations League finals, finals of the Europa League (Stockholm), Conference League (Tirana) and Youth League (Geneva) for UEFA. But the time spent interviewing a street doctor who's given decades of his life to helping the underprivileged in Calcutta probably tops the lot.

I first came to the Netherlands in 1985. I've lived there ever since, except for a two-year period during which I travelled throughout Asia and busked as well as taught English in Taipei. In addition to being an English-language writer/author/journalist/presenter I'm a musician, traveller, climber and footballer.
