I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2007 with a First Class MA with Honours in Business Studies. I spent my third year of university at the National University of Singapore and travelled extensively throughout South East Asia during that time.
I started working in retail in 2001 for River Island and was there for nearly 18 months. I spent some time at Crombie learning the finer points about men’s tailoring and then at Emporio Armani for a year and a half.
I created Macdonald Sporrans in June 2004, bringing my retail experience together with knowledge from my degree. The business funded my time as a student and my associated travels, and since graduating has become my full time occupation.
I am an amateur photographer and have had some of my work published. You can find some of my photos on my flickr page here.
I am an amateur SCUBA diver and hold a PADI Advanced Open Water qualification.
