Show All


I teach into the Visual Communication BA (Hons) programmes in Graphic Design, Illustration and Animation within the Design area.

Professional interests

With a background in Graphic Design, Illustration and Animation, my principal area of interest is in using digital moving image and experimental short filmmaking to explore the synthesis of typography, image making, video, and sound. The focus of this cross disciplinary approach is applying visual communication to investigate topics of political, cultural and social significance.
