Home club and ice rink – My home rink is Murrayfield and home club would have to be Edinburgh University where I started playing, although I now play with the Barbarians which is also a great club.

Favourite holiday destination and why? – The Alps – snow, sun and miles of skiing, what more could you want?
Favourite other Irish curler and why? – David Whyte – part of the World Championship Men’s Senior team who defied the odds and beat Canada in the final, plus he’s my Dad so I need to stay on his good side with Christmas fast approaching!
You can save one prized possession. What is it? – My electric guitar, have many happy memories from high school with it, plus aslong as I have it I can keep the pipe-dream of becoming a rock star alive
Who would you choose to be marooned on a desert island with? Derren Brown – saw him live this year and his show was mind-blowing, would love to find out all the secrets behind his tricks
Sum yourself up in five words – Driven, enthusiastic, fun, reliable positive
Good choice of favourite Irish curler. Suppose I need to get you a Christmas present now!!!
