Share this article

Date of birth: I'm in my 20s. I work in a bank so I'm wary of giving out my full birthday. Fraudsters.

Occupation: I am a serial band member. Currently play drums in Lady North, Dead Boy Robotics, Dupec and Pinky Suavo... and I work in a bank.

What sort of school pupil were you? Fairly quiet, except on Friday afternoons when I skipped double English to play drums in the music department.

Were your school days the best days of your life? I'd say they were medium-rare.

What was your first job? As a coffee monkey in a small caf in Corstorphine.

What has been your most unusual job? I work part time as a Financial Crime Associate.

My biggest achievement so far has been... Lady North are one of 16 acts cherry-picked to play the T Break stage at T In The Park.

My worst moment ever was… Reading the backlash on music blogs regarding the T Break winners and judges. Not cool.

Three words that sum up my personality are... Organised, tidy, simple.

Three places in Edinburgh you could not live without? Sneaky Pete's. Drum Central. The Meadows.

Who is your best friend? My dad (Toes).

Which TV show do you never miss? The Hotel.

If you could bring one star to Edinburgh who would it be? Bryan Adams. It's been a few years since he's been to Edinburgh. Too long if you ask me.

Name one item you not live without? My drum kit of course!
