Tell us more about yourself.

I really enjoy the world of film, I think it’s amazing the whole “lights. Camera. Action.” Magic is incredible. I also enjoy music as long as it’s being played on a record player.

I don’t really know where I’m from originally as my mum and I moved around a lot when she was a police officer in the Royal Airforce, for the time being we will just say I’m originally from St Andrews. I moved through to Glasgow when I was 6 to help support my grandparents, I stayed there until I was 13 then moved to Boness to help support my uncle after his wife passed…(I know depressing but don’t worry he’s okay and so is the rest of the family.)

During my time on Orbit’s Accelerator Programme, I would really like to sell products from my business across the globe. I have a passion for video games and I have identified a gap in the market that I’m ready to exploit. I have designed the games consoles by myself, and the products will allow gamers to escape from the trappings and limitations of consoles currently on the market.

How can the business community support you?

If the business community could give me any fresh ideas I’d greatly appreciate it. I’d really appreciate support with securing investment, and access to key personnel working in the UK’s gaming industry.

I’ve already secured my sponsors, but you can sponsor another Orbiteer to participate on Orbits Programme by clicking here.

Outside of school and college, I enjoy taking part in my goalkeeper training every week. I also enjoy going to the gym (when I have the time!). I currently attend Bo’ness Academy for full time education and Forth Valley College, Stirling Campus part time for a Foundation Apprenticeship in Business Skills.

I have recently secured a full-time position at the Scottish Government, and will be working in the asset management department.

How can the business community support you?

I’m always open to learning new things, and I’d really appreciate the chance to catch up with business owners over a coffee to learn more about what it takes to succeed.

I have secured my sponsors, however you can sponsor another Orbiteer to participate on the Programme by clicking here.
