If you were a Scottish animal, which would you be and why?
A mountain hare. I tend to go very pale in the winter and love being in the mountains.

What do few people know about you? 
I didn’t move to Scotland until I was six, after living in Australia and Botswana.

Which three words best describe your outlook on life?
Outdoors is best.

Where would you live if not Scotland? 
Probably the west coast of Canada. British Columbia is a great place to explore!
