I am passionate about the power of creativity to communicate ideas, benefit individual growth and nurture social cohesion. I have been making and teaching filmmaking and multimedia practices for over 22 years and continue to investigate the way traditional approaches to creative writing and audio-visual making converge with today's online social and creative practices across platforms and technologies.
Currently, I am a Senior Lecturer and the Course Leader for the Combined Film and Media Studies BA within The Cambridge School of Creative Industries, Anglia Ruskin University, UK, I am also part of the Decolonizing the Curriculum Working Group and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I am also on the board for the academic journal 2.0 (intellect) and screenwriter mentor for the Watersprite Student Film Festival Screenwriting Competition.
I have published academic papers on creative writing, visual culture and multimodal creativity and contributed content to various websites, blogs and specialist knowledge platforms.
