Completed a BA (Hons) in Film Theory, History & Criticism at Sheffield Hallam University, where I also worked at Sheffield Documentary film festival. I then went on to complete both my Postgraduate Teacher Training and my Masters in Film & European Cinema at The University of the West of England and wrote a thesis on Sexuality in Bertolucci films. I then spent 19 years as a Film lecturer and Examiner teaching film theory, screenplays, storyboarding and short film production to students and adults. I have also been a part of Creative UK’s ‘I-Features’, as a Screenplay and Treatment Assessor. Film is my passion and I’m a huge fan of independent films; the opportunities they bring for creatives and the personal experience and emotions they allow audiences to feel.
