Scottish player who finished top of the 2014 Q School ranking list.
How do you feel you performed in Q School?
I feel I performed well in Q school and was just unlucky not to win my last match against Michael Leslie. But I was the most consistent player and I finished number one on the Order of Merit.
What are your hopes and expectations for this season?
Just to win as many matches as I can and hopefully get onto the tour for next season.
When did you first start playing snooker?
At the age of 12.
What are your strengths and weaknesses as a player?
My strengths are my break building and safety play, my weakness would be that my mental and physical health is probably not where I want it to be yet.
Where do you practise, who with and how many hours a day?
I’ve been practising at the South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester recently and playing with a bunch of good players including Robert Milkins, Kishan Hirani, Daniel Wells, Michael Wasley, Aaron Cook and Hassan Vaizie. I try to practise 5 or 6 hours a day.
Do you play full time or do you have a job as well?
I’m more or less full time just now, but I also work in the bar in the Academy.
Who are your snooker idols?
Stephen Hendry for his winning mentality, and Ronnie O’Sullivan because he’s a genius!
What are your hobbies and interests away from snooker?
I enjoy keeping fit and going the gym. I also like going to the cinema and I enjoy most sports.
