I have over 16 years experience of working in education within the field of art and design. Over 10 years I have specialised in teaching animation and digital technology, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Within the Digital Design Studio at the Glasgow School of Art (GSA) I worked as a lecturer and I was also a Research Degree Supervisor. Towards the end of my tenure I also took on the additional role of Research Degree Co-ordinator. During my time within the Higher Education sector I have gained valuable experience in writing, developing and implementing educational programmes of study at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I have strong curriculum development skills and have made significant contributions towards adapting existing courses and creating new courses and modules. I am currently working as a lecturer in animation at De Montfort University in Leicester.

My academic research interests encompass a wide range of subject areas and are linked to my own fine art practice; aesthetics and the development of visual languages within early western cultures; teaching and learning; film and animation; and classical history. I am presently working on a series of paintings that explore cultural and historical narratives.

I have been involved in local community art groups and also set up a small independent art gallery with my partner. I led on the development of the Creative Whithorn Association and acted as Chair for the first year in 2014. I was also an active member of the Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival Board. In 2015 I will be jointly launching an online creative journal called darkmatter.scot which will explore aesthetics, philosophy, politics and creative writing.
