I am an experienced consultant with over 25 years of experience in the agricultural industry. I am responsible for the management of SAC Consulting’s Thurso office. The office currently services clients in Caithness and Sutherland with a broad range of consultancy services. This includes IACS, AECS, CAGS, Carbon Audits and ILMPs.

I previously worked as an Agricultural Officer with SGRPID, before moving to SAC in 2009. I have broad industry knowledge, gained from clients as well as through personal experience growing up on a family farm and subsequently working on farms and in auction markets in Caithness and Sutherland.

I am an experienced chairman of events, open days and groups including local agricultural society and chairman of local Highland sheep event.

I also completed half of the RSABI Great Glen Challenge 2018 bike race with one pedal.
