Areas of Expertise
Industry Experience, Affiliations and Achievements
What do you enjoy about teaching/your job?
I enjoy seeing how student’s passion for their work develops, their ideas creation and the diverse nature of what they produce. The one-on-one relationships I have with undergraduate and post graduate students. Working in collaboration with creative practitioners, utilising our individual craft and aesthetic skills to produce work.
What do you love about your area?
Music and sound are fascinating to me. Through performance and composition and the ability to transport both performer and listener to different places. The ability to work within and across many different styles of music, and also the collaborative nature of the discipline – both within Music itself with other performers/composers/producers etc, but also with the ability to work on multi-disciplinary projects across the various arts disciplines and beyond.
