After gaining my BA (Hons) in Fine Art  at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, London and my PhD and Teaching Accreditation by Portfolio both  from the University of Kent at Canterbury, I joined the CCI Faculty at Portsmouth University in November 2006, where I lecture on various aspects of Media Studies and digital culture. My specialist subjects are emergent media, cyber/digital culture, cybersexualities, deviant leisure, media networks, visual culture, art practice and the digital future.  I am also interested in notions of creativity and inter-disciplinarity, and exploring approaches as to how practice informs theory. 

I continue to follow traditional Fine Art practice with ongoing paintings, drawings, installations and film making as well as continuing writing articles on research. My early Fine Art degree installation using Virtual Reality to explore sexuality for the first time is cited as a notable example of its time by Professor Steve Dixon (2007) in Digital Performance: A History of New Media Theatre, Dance, Performance Art, and Installation. MA USA. MIT Press, and my contribution to the field has been recognised in Dr. Kate Devlin (2018) Turned on: Science, Sex and Robots, Bloomsbury Sigma

I have lectured and broadcast world wide for the past 30 years on my interests
