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 Scotland since 1993. Having been born and brought up in London, I moved to St Andrews for university (and stayed ten years), thence to Glasgow for more university (where I stayed for sixteen and a half years). I am now based in Nairn in the Highlands, with delightful views of (and over) the Moray Firth east of Inverness.

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 and a diploma in natural sciences.

I am a member of Equity. 

Yes, it probably was me on those election leaflets or in the newspaper. I'm less active as an activist these days and political polemic generally isn't my style. I have still have my opinions, of course.

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

I edit my own websites. Intermittently.

I'm usually friendly but sometimes very tired!

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