During my spare time, I continue to develop and maintain links with high profile international advertising agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi, Ogilvy, McCann and Publicis, many of which now employ ex-students from the university. 

My research interests are varied, having in the past completed a mix of exhibitions and international conferences and publications. I have a particular interest in songwriting and lyricism based on the theme of human mood and emotion. This has led to a number of published works as well a single broadcast on Radio 1.
