I studied at Chelsea School of Art and spend 10 years designing in London before moving into teaching at London College of Printing and Westminster University. In 2004 I started working with film, predominantly music videos, and alongside teaching media in Conservatoire EAST, I have work with young adults supporting progression into either education or employment through film therapy.

Course Director

To be creative is in my DNA. Originally from a Graphic Design background, my enthusiasm for moving image started during my degree in the 90’s. I have never looked back. This career has taken me around the world, working with impressive and interesting people. I’m fortunate enough to live my creative experience through talented individuals who embark on the Creative Media Production course. No day is the same…
