The Revd Gareth J M Saunders
Born in Edinburgh in 1971, I grew up in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders.
I studied Practical Theology and Christian Ethics at the University of St Andrews, graduating in 1993 with a Bachelor of Divinity (Hons).
Following a few years working in textile mills in the Scottish Borders, and with homeless young people in London, I moved to Edinburgh where I read for a Master of Theology in Ministry at the University of Edinburgh, while completing my ordination training with the Scottish Episcopal Church.
I was ordained deacon in 1999 and priest in 2000. I served my curacy at St Andrews Cathedral, Inverness, and then three parish churches in Edinburgh before I moved into full-time web development in 2006.
In 2006 I co-wrote the third edition of Teach Yourself Mahjong for Hodder Education.
I am currently writing my second book, about my experiences in NYCGB.
I enjoy reading, web development, playing guitar, and listening to music (see my 195 metal CDs project).
I am currently employed as web architect in the digital communications team at the University of St Andrews, where I’ve been employed since May 2006.
My primary interests and experiences are in:
- Agile project management (Scrum, DSDM, and XP)
- Business analysis
- CSS frameworks
- Information architecture.
- TerminalFour Site Manager (enterprise CMS)
