My professional background encompasses 35 years producing bespoke commissions as a designer craftsman and through my industrial experience specialising in furniture production and design. This work I have done in conjunction with teaching in a number of educational settings. This long-standing experience and technical expertise underpins my professional relationship with the current companies I worked with. I held an advisory role for the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, Manufacturing Advisory Service and Knowledge Exchange Enterprise Network.
The experience and technical expertise along with industry knowledge gives me a wide referential framework that supports my teaching and commitment to the students I work with.
