Brought up in East Fife, Scotland. Experienced research chemist and student support worker. Organised several projects on behalf of computing students, including an e-portfolios careers website in 2010. Currently a freelance proof-editor and editor-in-chief of an academic journal.
This book tells the story of a major project run by academics and by TuDocs Ltd in the years 2010 - 2012, to try and generate a student-led new-start business movement in the west of Scotland, namely the Greater Glasgow area. This was a great project which did not succeed, although a few students did manage to build good portfolios and secure jobs in the games industry.
