I am a London based academic and experimental sound composer who teaches Visual Culture and Media Studies at Richmond. I also teach Contextual Studies and Digital Creativity at Ravensbourne University. My PhD thesis entitled, Noise Practice in the Digital Age, explored the use of noise in sound composition and its relationship to social, political and cultural change and my practice combines modular synthesis with a collage of handmade analogue objects and chaotic digital interfaces to demonstrate how noise challenges traditional musical structures and conventions.

Teaching & learning
Over the past decade I have been lecturing in a range of topics that encompass the fields of media, cultural studies and the digital arts. Prior to working at Richmond I worked at the University of Greenwich as a Lecturer in Media Theory and Practice and was responsible for the implementation and teaching of the Digital Realities module that combined theory and analysis with digital and analogue practices. I have also lectured in Documentary Practice, Mediated Environments and run workshops on a wide range of software encompassing film, sound and design. My role also included daily pastoral support to students on a wide range of individual and group media art projects and dissertations.
