Since graduating from the London Film School and then the Department of Education, University of Oxford, I have dedicated my career to Film and Media Education.
During that time I have been book author, conference speaker, teacher, mentor, workshop leader, university lecturer, consultant and recent Professor of Film.
For example, I have taught full and part-time in the UK, the EU, South Africa, while collaborations have included Film Haus Frankfurt/Main, Cinemasports USA, the South African Council of Higher Education, and of course, CILECT.
I am an alumnus of Keele University, the London (International) Film School, the Institute of Education – UCL, the Department of Education – University of Oxford, and the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany
