Since graduating from the London Film School and the Department of Education, University of Oxford, I have dedicated my career to Film Education, specializing in curricular planning, story design and screenwriting.

During that time I have been book author, conference speaker, teacher, mentor, workshop leader, university lecturer, consultant and recent Professor of Film.

Collaborations have included Film Haus Frankfurt/Main, Cinemasports USA, the Council of Higher Education, South Africa, and CILECT (below.)

Of late I have completed a 2012- 2017 book project - The 21st Century Film, TV and Media School for CILECT, the International Association of Film and Television Schools/Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision. My duties were as project initiator, co-editor, and chapter contributor. My introductory chapter is titled Film School, And How It Can Save Us.

The book (476, pp.) is due for public availability in 2018.
