He is a graduate of the Universities of Aberdeen, Southampton and Edinburgh. His approach is heavily grounded by fieldwork in the business enterprise,[2][3][4] and he favours an interdisciplinary approach to the study of a firm, combining economics with accounting and finance.[5]

In 2014 he became Head of Dundee Business School Abertay University.


His book Small Business Enterprise (1993), uses econometric analysis to examine a body of small firms, and is one of several that have been favourably reviewed.[6] He has written and presented research papers,[7][8]

His recent work has been on strategies for the growth and performance of high-technology firms.[9]

One of his books, The Foundations of Small Business Enterprise, was published by Routledge in 2007 [10]
