I joined Kingston University in 2018 as Head of School for the School of Design in the faculty of KSA. I lead the celebrated portfolio of innovative and highly creative departments in Fashion, Graphic Communication design, Illustration Animation and 3D Design.
With an MA from Central St Martins UAL and currently pursuing a doctorate at the RCA in disruptive approaches to search & retrieval UX in UiD, I have a lifelong ambition and dedication to design education's ability to greatly improve people's lives and their future potential.
As a design professional and having built and worked-on numerous campaigns for advertising and design projects spanning 20+ years, I have created fashion imagery to still-life works, drinks and brand focused FMCG campaigns running photographic/design projects with a broad range of illustrious international design agencies.
The faculty of KSA has an outstanding reputation in industry with close relationships supporting placements for our students nationally and internationally. Our UG and PG courses are leading sector league tables and investment in Kingston University Town House, Knights park campus workshops and facilities builds on the excellent student experience, KEF and research culture.
Kingston students are at the very forefront of the design industries, and through building on the innovative and socially responsible work here in the Design School, I will emphasise the need to nurture and celebrate innovation and creativity as key value drivers for building a fair, inclusive and diverse society.
