As Subject Leader in Film Practice at the London College of Fashion I oversee fashion film output and help enable innovative and reflective creative practice.

I champion Fashion Film-making as not only an industry-led requirement but an invaluable communication skill across enterprise and the arts.

Showcasing our students work at the Institute of Contemporary Art as part of the London Short Film Festival, I spoke at 'Transgression and Convention in the Fashion Film' and we sponsor a Fashion Film strand at the Aesthetica Short Film Festival. Graduating work has been shown at the Berlin Fashion Film Festival, BornShorts and the British Film Institute.

I'm was a jury member for the 1st Buenos Aires International Fashion Film Festival where I also presented a keynote speech.

The growing intersection of fashion and technology provides a perfect landscape for discussion and innovation at LCF -  I've spoken at the BFI Media Conference New Media Day on iPad & Film Education and recently presented Shooting from the Hip: Fashion Film Practice & Mobile Technologies at the Designs on E-Learning conference at Texas State University

As an independent filmmaker I've produced, directed and edited films for brands including Barclays, Dune, Proctor & Gamble, Oasis, Tateossian, Goldwell and institutions including The Barbican Centre and The Royal Ballet.

The Stage described my work as ‘stunning visual imagery’ and it's been TV Pick of the Week in The Evening Standard and Time Out.

I enjoy informed agitation at the crossroads of personal technology, creative practice, enterprise and pedagogy and I'm proud to be part of a global community of education pioneers as an Apple Distinguished Educator.

Committed to multi-disciplinarian approaches, I'm wary of theories that don’t inform action and an advocate of innovative technology and creative media practice.

As the Graduate School Learning & Teaching Coordinator at the London College of Fashion I lead on various initiatives to encourage innovative academic practice around the use of mobile technologies - how best to utilise the super computer in our pocket to overcome the ever present challenges that can hamper pedagogic practice.

Alongside my research activity I offer one-to-one and team consultancy - I've spoken at the BFI Media Conference New Media Day on iPad and Film Education and recently presented Shooting from the Hip: Fashion Film Practice & Mobile Technologies at the Designs on E-Learning conference at Texas State University.

The growing intersection of fashion and technology provides a perfect landscape for discussion and innovation at LCF - recently I presented Wearing it on Our Sleeve: Learning, Teaching & The Internet of Things at the Designs on E-Learning conference at Texas State University as a starting point of this research activity.
