I was born in Paisley, Scotland in 1956. I have lived in New Jersey since arriving in the United States in 1965. After struggling in my early years, and overcoming many tough obstacles, I have emerged a better person. I have tried my hand at some challenging things, since my rebirth. I enjoy golf. Learning how to play golf taught me a lot about myself as an athlete, and a man. Running marathons has taught me about fortitude and the power of the human spirit. I run now, just to stay in shape.
