About me

Introduction I'm a forty-something expatriate Brit. I was born in Falkirk, Scotland, but grew up mainly in Surrey. I live with my wife in her native city of Berlin, and work in the IT business. I was confirmed into the Church of England on Easter Eve, 2002, in the unforgettable setting of Ely Cathedral, and now belong to St George's Anglican church in Berlin. I met my wife, who is studying theology with a view to entering the priesthood, at the church, and we married in June 2003. As a theological liberal who's never voted Tory in his life, I should be part of Christian Aid's "core constituency". But on this issue they've lost the plot, and for me it's just too important to ignore.
