Bruce served as a Captain in the Royal Marines Commandos before becoming active in politics. Originally from Highland Perthshire, he and his wife have called Edinburgh home since 2013 and find it a great place to start a family.
Prior to joining the Armed Forces, Bruce completed an undergraduate degree in Economics and a MSc in Strategic Studies both at Aberdeen University. Now working in a project management role he loves the work life balance that living and working in the city brings. In his spare time he enjoys hill-walking and is enthusiastic about the great outdoors whatever the weather.
