About me

Gender MALE
Location Fair Isle, Shetland Islands, Scotland, United Kingdom
Introduction Welcome to my blog! I moved to Fair Isle Nov. 2006. Originally from Saratoga Springs, New York, USA. I live in the Auld Haa House built for the Laird in the early 1700’s. Wow! What history! What a view! I’m an “Artist” though it is not easy to finding the time to sculpt or paint around here. I have an Artist Studio and Gallery/Shop at the South Lighthouse. I also have reinstated the Fair Isle Lighthouse Keepers Golf Course on the nearby croft land. I run and operate as well as cook for my Auld Haa Guesthouse, with all those guest it keeps me pretty busy. A few hours every month I train as a member of H.M. Coastguard Search & Rescue Team. I have been a life long sport fisherman, since moving I have also become an enthusiastic birdwatcher. I like to share my adventures with friends & family. Media interest surrounded our move and choices, so people all over the world like to see if we are still alive. Birdwatchers wonder what bird is next? I promote Fair Isle by attracting visitors and worldwide awareness of Fair Isle, it’s knitting & heritage. I just love showing this truly amazing place to everyone, most especially my son. Cheers.
