I joined the University in 2016 after 34 years in the media industry on both sides of the microphone and camera with employers including the BBC, ITV, Sky News, Johnston Press and Trinity Mirror. I am passionate about the art of journalism and firmly believe everyone has a story to tell. I have an MA in Multimedia Journalism and I'm a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
I have won industry awards including the Royal Television Society and Sony Radio Awards. I love my sport, particularly cricket.
