    Favorite Quotes:
    “Humans have become like a city on a hill, whose decision making is terminally compromised by its denial of context, like some cancerous growth, whose success in replication and expansion seems to signify achievement and progress, yet whose existence poses a significant threat to the greater whole.”

    My work background is in operational meteorology and in my career I have been involved in forecasting for everything from bananas to jumbo jets.I joined the UK Met Office 1974 as an observer at Glasgow Airport. After training as a forecaster, I worked as an Operational aviation forecaster at various defence sites and airports. In 1982, I moved to Glasgow Weather Centre as a forecaster and STV broadcaster till 1988. I then took up a post as Senior Forecaster London Weather Centre, then Senior Forecaster ITV where I qualified as a trainer in presentation techniques for the ITV Association. After being diagnosed with MS, I moved into management and became Head of London Weather Centre followed by a period of front-line management for Southern England and Europe covering London, Norwich and Cardiff Weather Centres and defence stations from Akrotiri in Cyprus to St Mawgan in Cornwall. I took up the post of Met Office Chief Adviser for Scotland & Northern Ireland in March 2008 and moved to Scotland. I retired in September 2014. My one claim to fame is once performed a comedy sketch on TV with Manuel (Andrew Sachs) from Fawlty Towers in support of Comic Relief.
