Full Profile

Prior to my position at UCLan, I was working in a creative role within branding, marketing and visual image across a range of clients for creative agencies.

I had the responsibility for the day to day management of numerous accounts delivering marketing and creative solutions to a wide range of both lifestyle and fashion clients. Working with varying budgets across a breadth of promotional campaigns, a large part of the output included deliverables in retail, lifestyle and property environments.

I completed a masters in Creative Imaging in 2007 and developed my career from there focussing more on visual image and impact. Whilst teaching at University I have consulted for design agencies on generating new business and indeed run numerous successful projects and knowledge transfer activities in my post as course leader. I have an excellent network of industry contacts that have been integral not only to the continued involvement of the subject but also to maintain opportunities for students to gain work experience and for them to have exposure to as many facets of the industry as possible whilst studying the wider subject of Fashion Styling.

Research activities

Currently I am involved with the research group investigating employability and the creative subjects.
