Senior Lecturer Design
I have enjoyed and benefited from a rich and diverse career and returned to higher education following a ten-year career in the police service.
In 2008, I had the opportunity to work with a highly regarded furniture designer maker Chris Tribe. This creative design-and-make partnership gave me the confidence to join a small design collective in Sheffield, which undertook private commissions and prototyping work.
I later began my own design + make furniture design practice and workshop. I have undertaken several commissions for discerning clients and enjoyed the collaborative aspect of these relationships.
I have combined my professional practice activities with my part-time teaching commitments at SIA for the last 9 years.
