I graduated from Liverpool Hope University with a first class honours degree in Sport Development and Sport Studies in 2009 before completing a MSc degree in Research Methods with a focus on qualitative research in 2010 (also from Liverpool Hope University).

In 2010, I joined the Centre for Olympic Studies & Research (COS&R) based at the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University to undertake a fully funded research studentship (PhD) in sport management and marketing, which I completed in 2013. While studying for my PhD, I was also employed, part-time, at Liverpool Hope University as a lecturer in sport studies (sport sociology and football studies), and at Loughborough University as a research assistant. Between completing my PhD and starting in my current role as a lecturer in sport management in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University in August 2015, I held positions as an assistant lecturer in sport management at Loughborough University (2013-2014) and as a lecturer in sport management at the University of Northampton (2014-2015).

To supplement my academic activities, I maintain an extensive bank of practical sports coaching experience (14+ years), I am a member of the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) and the European Association of Sport Management (EASM), and I have engaged in research and consultancy projects for various organisations. Examples include: Loughborough University's own Sport Development Centre, and TARGET Football CIC, a Community Interest Company based in Toxteth, Liverpool (placed 45th out of 908 on the 2014 RBS SE100 Index)

I am an early career academic, and my research is currently focused on:
- Mega sports events and place marketing (image impact studies)
- Customer relationship management in sport
- Managing contemporary community and volunteer organisations
