Born in: I was born in Dundee, Scotland, United Kingdom. Dundee is the forth biggest city in Scotland with a population of 148,000. I lived here until the age of 22 when I moved to Berlin, Germany. In Berlin I started my skating career and after 2 years living I moved to the KIA Speed Skating Academy here in Bavaria, Germany.
Family and friends: I have an older sister called Lauryn, she is three years older than me and recently become a mother for the first time to a little boy called Harry. My Parents and Sister all work within the Emergency Services.
Religion: Yes I would say i'm religious but in my own way. I believe in God but not as something (or someone) but rather God is Everything.
Schooling: I finished School with average grades....
Hobbies: Love drinking Coffee, searching for unique blends and strengths. Reading Philosophy books and debating questions about life.
Other sports: Away from my training program you can find me on the Golf Course (more time spent searching for my lost ball than playing but still a laugh with friends)
