About Me

Hiya from Scotland, an' lang may yer lum reek! * ----- I respond very powerfully to spaces and places, rather than objects, so predictably I'm completely in love with exploring new methods for creating realistic and imaginative buildings.

Many of my building tutorials are now available, newly written, here at TSR. Any of my new walls, floors and ground covers are TSRAA.

As for lil' ol' me, I happily answer to Andy and I'm incredibly happy with my beloved wife Ruth and our beloved Birman cat, the real Lord Tiko (our boys are all away from home now).

Before ill health led me to very, very early retirement, I worked in organisational and personal development, and taught in various parts of the globe as well as around the UK so I've experienced the beauty of many places. And - unusually for an FA, I think! - I really do love playing the game for myself as well as creating for it.

* Part of an old Scots saying - it means "Long may your chimney smoke!" or even "Live Long And Prosper"!
