Graduating with a Masters in Design

One Thing Students Won't Know About Me...

 I can play the piano and clarinet.


​I graduated in 2012 from the University of Lincoln with a Degree in Media Production. I then decided that I wanted to study for a Masters Degree. In order to do this I moved back to Birmingham and worked all the hours I could at a local supermarket whilst freelancing as a Graphic Designer. After taking a year out to work, I decided to return to the University Lincoln to study an MA in Design.

During my MA I decided to explore the animation technique of stop-motion. I created several sets, filmed and edited the entire 8 minute film in 8 months.

After graduating in 2015 I soon landed my first lecturing role at Boston College. I am currently teaching Graphic Design and Motion Graphics across several levels.
