My digital media industry experience spans from my post as an Art Director to my current role as a Lecturer in Digital and Social Media. The knowledge I have gained from these experiences has been successfully carried forward into an academic and research environment. I have a broad practical knowledge of new technologies within various creative sectors coupled with my developing research/knowledge of social implications of emergent communication technologies. I feel this is an asset and allows for me to be flexible and foster new approaches to various genres of disciplines. 

I have recently completed my PhD in Computer Mediated Communication and Interpersonal relationships. I am in the process of writing research papers, which will offer me the opportunity to expand my academic role further within research and digital media.
