His career as a medium began at the age of 24, when a medium told him that he would be performing on the platform one day. This inspired him to begin his 15 year study to become a medium. He was trained by the legendary medium Albert Best.
He now works giving demonstrations and organising workshops. He is well known for not charging for his readings.
It is also worth noting that he has been repeatedly tested on his abilities, mostly by the Scottish Society for Psychical Research. Archie E Roy, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy at the University of Glasgow, stated that he has found him to have some ability.
