After graduating with a first class degree in Computing and Information Technology with Education Studies, and spending a year on a JISC funded research project, I joined the e-Learning Team at Marjon in 2007, working with colleagues to develop the institution’s use of technology-enhanced learning (TEL).

In 2011 I became the Senior e-Learning Technologist at Marjon, taking on responsibility for managing the e-Learning Team who provide support, advice and technical developments to the staff and student body. I also manage institution-wide TEL projects, which recently includes a campus-wide Lecture Capture roll-out, and the adoption of e-Submission. This multifaceted role includes a blend of pedagogic advice and CPD-facilitation, as well as technical development on bespoke projects that improve the student experience. I sit on a number of Marjon committees which focus on improving the student experience and developing innovative learning & teaching practices. I also represent the institution as a member of the UK Heads of e-Learning Forum (HeLF) and am active within the Association of Learning Technology (ALT) network.

If I'm not working, studying (although I've recently completed my Masters in Online and Distance Education with the Open University - woohoo!) or generally playing with technology I can be found attempting to surf on the north coast of Cornwall, kicking a bit of leather around a football pitch or proving to my wife that succeeding on Mario Kart is an art form.
