I am a Lecturer/ Teacher Trainer/ Speaker/ EdTech Consultant/ Founder and Manager of a team that supports and trains staff and students in using digital, creative, innovative approaches to Teaching, Learning and Assessment.

My work has an emphasis on collaboration, creativity, communication, empathy, industry relevance, and providing bespoke, personalised, and differentiated 1-1, Team, and Inset Day training for Educators and students while I continue to teach myself.
