I grew up in the Highlands of Scotland and in 2007 graduated from Edinburgh University with a degree in English Literature. Since then I have taught English in Italy, Scotland and latterly Japan. My writing and journalism has been published in New Writing Scotland, The Scottish Sunday Herald, The Oban Times, The London Magazine, and narrative.ly among others.

I live in the Southside of Glasgow and as an experienced teacher of English I offer proofreading and tutoring services.

I am married with one daughter who you can just about see peeking into the frame here below.
