I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2005 with a degree in classics. Studying the classics allowed me to look at ancient religions and magic, subjects which I was greatly drawn to. My dissertation was on Erotic Magic of the Ancients. I figured if I had to write 12,000 words I should write about something I’d find interesting!
I have adapted a couple of stories, including the Bacchae by Euripides, which I merged with Tam o’ Shanter by Robert Burns for an exclusive showing at the Scottish Pagan Conference at the Pleasance Theatre in Edinburgh.
I am a former English language teacher and cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapist. As well as being a classicist, I have also studied social psychology, psychology of addictions, and religion.
My love of symbolism has drawn me to Gnosticism and Liberal Catholicism, in which I am now very involved. I am a demonologist and angelologist, as well as a mystic and healer. I am hoping to become a trained exorcist in the future, and much of my own personal research is now taken up with this subject.
I head SPI Scotland, investigating and researching paranormal experiences. I also host and produce my own radio show, ADX-Files.
My lectures include: Demons and Dark Places; Angels: Our Celestial Allies; Faeries and Aliens; Eleusis: Mushrooms, Magic Potions & Mystical Experiences; Erotic Magic in the Ancient World; Clairsentience; and Symbolic Dream Hypnosis.
