I joined Leeds Arts University in 2013 to lead the lively and exciting BA (Hons) Creative Advertising course, having previously taught at the University of Leeds on MA and BA Hons courses in both Advertising and Graphic Design. Prior to this I worked in a number of roles in the creative industries predominately centred on branding design, implementation and brand promotion. For my Masters, I specialised in Graphic Design and my work included explorations in areas of organisational and place branding. My current role involves the management and leadership of the Creative Advertising department where I am responsible for the direction, monitoring, planning and development of the curriculum with an emphasis on leading a rich and vibrant environment for staff and students in which passion and curiosity drive all aspects of creativity.
