I started life as an archaeologist before retraining in IT and have wide experience of work in the voluntary / not for profit and continuing education sectors in Scotland where I am usually based. This has included database design, hardware support, software support, website design and tuition.

From 2009 - 2010 I was  in Nairobi, Kenya as Assistive Technology Tutor with the Kenyan Society for the Blind. Then came two years in Ethiopia, working with the Addis Ababa HIV / AIDS Prevention and Control Office and the Ethiopian Midwives Association. My most recent stint abroad was another two years in Papua New Guinea as Provincial Capacity Building ICT Advisor on a United Nations Development Program / Ministry of Finance project. For now I am back in Scotland and a part time Open University tutor.
