He graduated in 1987 and spent the following year doing postgraduate study, and travelling across Europe, including Spain, Holland, Belgium and Denmark.
He continues to work part-time as a senior laboratory technician with Edinburgh Council, and this work is is reflected in his art, which often includes scientific references and images drawn from scientific observations.
