Peter Shaw



I am a former British Army officer, and also a qualified accountant. I have run my own businesses since 1987, before which I was financial director of one of the Gencor companies. Since 1987, I have started and run Rand Rentals Pty ltd, Source Electronics Pty Ltd, which became Ukukhanya Technologies. This was sold in 2001. Since that time, I have run several blogs, the latest of which are,,, and I also ran a local blog called, but this is now defunct.

I have additionally gained experience in writing a column for the local newspaper., and many book reviews. In addition I run a local book shop (both secondhand and new books) in Aberdeen., which published a quarterly newsletter. I have had many years experience in writing blog content, business plans, reports, press releases, advertisements, articles, newsletters, and two novels. Much of this experience (except for the novels ) has been gained from freelance work. I retain a number of private clients whose websites I designed originally and still host and maintain.

Though my freelance work probably accounts for less than 60% of my total income at present, it has substantially exceeded that in the past, and I wish to grow as the main source of my income.
