I have been the Chaplain here since 2011. My journey to St Andrews took me from childhood in Glasgow to university in Aberdeen, two years living in Japan, four years in Ireland, and ten years as a parish minister.  I was drawn to chaplaincy for its immense variety – exploring different expressions of faith, encountering people facing all sorts of experiences, sharing the lives of people discovering who they are. Every day is a whirlwind, but it’s hugely rewarding.

When I’m not with students or staff, you might see me on one of St Andrews’ many golf courses, or catching some of Fife’s finest bands, or packing for a trip – in recent years to Uzbekhistan and Turkmenistan, India and the Caribbean, invariably bumping into someone from St Andrews…

Feel free to get in touch with me – email me, phone me, or come to the office, right across from the Union. I look forward to finding out how I – and the Chaplaincy – can help you.
