I've worked as a freelance Web/ software developer and technical writer since completing my Masters in 2007 (MSc/ PgDip IT with Distinction, Glasgow University). My undergraduate degree was in English Language & Literature (Glasgow 1999) and I had a load of different jobs before I worked in tech.
I'm particularly interested in exploring how people learn technology and how they learn through technology.
