About meI'm a passionate historical researcher currently undertaking my doctoral studies at the University of St Andrews and within the Institute for Scottish Historical Research. My focus is social and military history in 18th-century Scotland, but I've got a bug about the entire century, all throughout the world. My time is spent not reading as much as I should; instead working at the game store I own in Northern California, geocaching, or delighting in the many splendors of my dearest love, Cygnoir.
