This is what he says about himself:-
I’m a science writer at the University of Edinburgh, with a background in space science research. I’m also involved in local business – my wife owns an independent bakery in the Old Town.
I’ve been a councillor before, so I know how to get things done to help local people. And I know how vital a well-run council is to everyone in the city. I want to see a vibrant, beautiful city centre that we can all be proud of, and I want to see Edinburgh continue to flourish with sound finances, cleaner streets, more jobs and better schools.
As a local councillor, I will champion the interests of everyone who lives and works in the city centre. I truly believe it to be the finest part of the finest city in the world, and I will do everything in my power to keep it that way.
