Hi, my name's Craig Hood (as you might have already guessed). I was born in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland in 1963, but I spent the first 25 years of my life in Rosyth.

I built, and look after this website, The Shapists website, and Aidan Bremner's website (Ewen Bremner from trainspotting's dad).

I also built Jill Bryson from Strawberry switchblade's website.

Here's me growing up and down.

I stayed in London for a couple of years then back to Dunfermline, I went to Dunkeld for a weeks holiday in November 2002 and fell in love with the place. I ended up staying there for about two years.

On the 9th/Sep/2004 I headed off in a campervan to europe, after a year and a half "living my dream" of making a living by playing music I am currently back in sunny Scotland.


This is me heading off on the ferry.
