After training to be a teacher at the University of Chichester (1961- 1964) I taught for three years in the Wirral, Cheshire. Then I returned to study Life Sciences at Liverpool University (1967-1970) I went on to do research for a Ph.D - studying free living Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda and Zaire. I then taught for sixteen years at the University of the West of Scotland. After studying for a Dip.Ed.Tec. at Jordanhill College in Glasgow (1982-1984) I again changed careers and was appointed Director of Audio Media Visual Services at Strathclyde University in Glasgow. Whilst there I was awarded my Churchill Fellowship to research the role of the newly emerging Virtual Reality Technology in Education and Training. I passed on the skills I had learned from this in U.K. and in China, Rwanda, UAE and Malaysia. Although I am now supposed to be retired I still work helping in the reconstruction in Rwanda - and create enhanced iBooks and videos of my life’s work.
