Neil grew up in South Africa where he was ordained as a minister of the Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa.

Neil served two congregations in Johannesburg for 5 years before moving to the farming community of Elgin in the Western Cape for a further 8 years.  In 2013, he and his family relocated to Scotland, where Neil became a minister of the Church of Scotland.  Neil has been the minister at Kintore Parish Church for 7 years.

Neil and his wife, Michelle, have two daughters.  With one daughter he loves to cook; with the other he loves to walk in the Cairngorms.  As a family they love to travel when they can and build Lego when they can’t.  They all love Jesus!  Neil is sometimes found on the golf course; his golf-ball is sometimes not.
