Information about Rich

I graduated from the University of St Andrews in 2010 with a degree in History.

My degree primarily focused on Scottish history, but I also covered mediaeval history, English, philosophy, psychology, and management during my time there. The primary skills I learned in my degree were assimilating and evaluating information and putting together cohesive arguments in order to answer essay questions, which is a vitally important skill for History and English.

Shortly before graduating I started working full time for the University in their IT Services department as a member of the Web Team, in which I specialised in content editing and creation.

As part of my job role, I ran a monthly workshop with large groups of web editors across the University that focused on best writing techniques for the web and usability.nI also hosted a weekly clinic for web editors and provided 1-1 training on using the website`s content management system, and various other issues.

After working for the University, I worked for both Dundee and Angus College as a learning resources tutor, and as a lecturer in core skills IT at Fife College. In the case of the role at Dundee and Angus college I was responsible for delivering and preparing learning skills materials to assist the students in their studies.

I current work as a full time musician, regularly performing at events of all sorts as a bagpiper, saxophonist and guitarist. I`m currently undertaking a second distance learning degree with Berklee College of Music in Boston. I have undertaken my graded theory exams with ABRSM and have an advanced knowledge of music theory and performance aspects with the instruments I play. I also have a sizeable knowledge of music production and arrangement from my experiences of producing my own music, and as part of the studies I have undertaken with Berklee.



Availability: My availability varies from week to week but generally I am available on Monday to Wednesday evenings. Weekends are doable, depending on my performance calendar.
