As an Associate Senior Lecturer I joined School of Media and Performing Arts (formerly School of Creative Arts, Film and Media) in 2003 from the School of Art, Design and Media where I taught Moving-Image Production. At this time I also maintained my own practice as a Media Arts consultant and practitioner. My clients included Arts Council England, the University of Sussex, Arts Council England South East, Lighthouse Arts and Training Ltd. and the science-art forum BLIP. I was also co-director of SixtySecondFilm, an Arts Council funded initiative promoting experimental practices in curation and filmmaking. Prior to this I have worked in media production as both an editor and a director. During the 1980s I was a director of East Anglian Film-Makers Ltd., which was co funded by Chanel 4 and the BFI.

My research initially focused on the emergence of new entertainment technologies and film-making in Victorian Brighton. I continue this interest in emerging technologies, working with generative artists and online developers, and am currently researching the place of alternative media within the democratic process. In 2010 I took up a full-time post with SCAFM in order to develop new strands focusing on writing for different media forms.


At this time I am writing an experimental fiction, which draws on the history of filmmaking in Brighton.
