Academic Course Leader in Film Studies

Literary and Critical Studies

My love for film is rooted in the youthful years I spent watching 1980s action cinema, especially the Rocky series. This continues to this day with my love for a wide range of sports films and action cinema from around the world.


It was the desire to study something I loved which took to me university and a Film Studies degree, rather than any particular career plan. My desire to continue developing my knowledge and love for analysing films propelled me on to postgraduate study and then to a career in teaching which allows me to continue deconstructing films with other lovers of film on a daily basis.
