Who is Chris Young?

I am a writer and performer specialising in versatility. I do a lot of things with a lot of energy, but not all of the time and not all at once (although sometimes it feels like it).

I have lived in Glasgow since 2003 and in Scotland since 1993, having been born and brought up in London.

Over the years, I have won various competitions and awards; I have also won The Weakest Link and appeared on several other quiz shows such as Countdown and University Challenge.

I have degrees in Greek and Latin (St Andrews, 1997) and Law (Glasgow, 2005), as well as postgraduate qualifications in IT and legal practice. Having gone back to study sciences, my next degree will be an MChem in Chemistry with Drug Discovery at the University of Strathclyde.

I am a member of Equity. 

Although I am involved in politics, polemic generally isn't my style.

I have tried my hand (and other extremities) at various sports. Presently I keep fit mainly by road running and strength training. 

I edit my own websites.

I'm usually friendly but sometimes very tired!

For anything else, read my writings, see my performances, or buy me a drink.
