Family origins from Aberdeen and Dundee, though an expat from the day he was born in Malaysia. Has lived in Doha for 8 years, and is a former SiQ committee member for 6 years. More than happy to rejoin as the SiQ is a great society with which to work, and rejoining an enthusiastic committee to ensure continuity of the best events in Doha, not to mention support of charitable institutions, makes it worthwhile.
