Co-Director: Overseeing project delivery in CIRIC

I am an academic with a track record of securing funding (£10.3 Million) and who has responsibility for delivery and direction of creative industry research programmes and academic research in the Creative Industries Research and Innovation Centre (CIRIC) at UWTSD, Swansea. This included oversight of R&D and knowledge transfer projects with over 350 Welsh SMEs including many media SMEs.

My teaching and research focuses on creating and financing content within the media industry.


After Effects workshops and tutorials to BA General Illustration students and to students sitting the MA Contemporary Dialogues portfolio of courses.


Presenting seminars and running workshops in social media and raising finance for the creative industries particularly through Crowdfunding.

The focus of my research is the development and financing of innovative content for the media and entertainment industry. The main challenge is to develop ideas with a strong narrative foundation that transfer across media platforms. In order to achieve this I: 

  • use imaging, video and interactive applications to develop content ideas primarily for the children’s market
  • initiate collaborative partnerships with media professionals including writers, illustrators and production companies
  • add-value to IP projects brought into UWTSD for support
  • develop IP within teams that have potential to work across different media platforms e.g. TV and mobile technology 

This activity has supported the receipt of development funding for our client partners and grants into the CIRIC in excess of £1 million. 

  • Development of content ideas for the media industry
  • Financing research and knowledge transfer between HEI’s and the creative industries
  • Crowdfunding
  • Social Media analytics
  • Adobe After Effects
