Pre-sessional Teacher

Newcastle University

  • At Newcastle University I taught on their pre-sessional course, which involved getting foreign students' English up to scratch for starting a masters degree. The vast majority of students were Chinese, with a small number from the Middle East. The job involved marking, testing and planning to improve their IELTS scores.

  • I worked as an English teacher at a small private school in Sapporo, Japan for about a year and a half. I taught a very broad range of age groups from very small children up to elderly students, tailoring my classes to their individual needs.


Graphic Designer & Performer

Super Color Super

Mar 2012 - Jun 2012
  • Accompanying a range of other artists and musicians, I produced a VJ style set to go with a live band. The idea was to use an analogue method, so all the artists involved produced their visuals using an old fashioned projector, manipulating the light in different ways. Additionally we designed posters to advertise across Busan in South Korea.

  • Provided editorial illustration for a range of articles and reviews.

During this time I rotated between 3 rural schools each week, 1 of which was a middle school and the other 2 elementary. I taught their English curriculum and also created and ran their summer and winter English camps.



MA Graphic Design Communication

Concept driven and heavily researched based, the course gives students the option to explore any medium from print to animation or digital media. There are also additional briefs on offer as extra curricula activities.


Trinity TESOL

  • A 1 month full time course preparing students wanting to teach abroad on how to do it professionally in a classroom environment. Extremely full on and difficult, the course quickly provides the training necessary to be able to work in a broad range of classroom environments and teaches many key strategies on how to be effective as an English teacher.


BA(Hons) Illustration and Animation

Kingston University

Aug 2006 - May 2009
  • A 3 year BA giving students the option to specialize in either illustration or animation. The first year allows them to branch out into both areas, studying animation basics like walk cycles whilst also learning book binding, architectural drawing and how to make a children's book. Second and third year are more heavily involved with developmental work in one of these two key areas.



ShowCase 100

Vice Chancellor's Scholarship Award

  • A scholarship offering students wanting to do a Master's Degree at UAL a grant covering 50% of their fees.


Brill Award

  • During second year studying Illustration and Animation at Kingston I won the Brill Award for architectural drawing. The award itself has been ongoing for many years and the commission requires selected artists to draw a piece of local architecture that's in danger of disappearing.
